Chine collé is the process of concurrently printing and mounting a thinner sheet of printing paper onto a thicker backing sheet, to achieve a more desirable printing surface or for mounting purposes.  The workshop will begin with a showing of prints using the chine colle process and discussion of historical and contemporary uses of the technique. Participants will gain insight into the chine colle process by working with delicate papers through demonstrations and individual work with the instructor.  How to handle damp and dry delicate papers, and tricks of the trade will be taught, as well as how to cook and prepare the wheat paste adhesive, various application methods (the direct method and the pre-pasted method), proper dampening and misting techniques, and plate and press preparation.  Instruction on related techniques such as printing on thin papers without adhesion and using wheat paste as an adhesive for sculptural paper work will also be addressed. Ample time will be provided to apply techniques to individual print projects and to consult individually with the instructor on specific projects.  All levels
