Painterly Collagraph

March 16 @ 10:00 am - March 17 @ 5:00 pm


Saturday-Sunday, March 16-17, 10 AM – 5 PM

with Joyce Silverstone

The term collagraph stems from the Greek, “colla” being derived from the verb “to glue”. Typically, a collagraph is composed of layers of materials that are glued or attached to a substrate.

In this workshop, students will explore making a collagraph by adhering carborundum grit to PETG plastic plates with rolled or painted acrylic mediums. Using a variety of acrylic mediums with or without carborundum, these plates can hold a wide range of values; from gritty deep dark spaces to washes of light tone. All the materials will be applied directly to the surface of the plate with brushes, hand-made stampers, or rolled through cloth or stencil shapes. These plates are open to drypoint additions that can increase the definition and texture of the image.

Demonstrations will include how to make a test plate, tips for inking and wiping techniques, and printing on an etching press. There will be time to practice intaglio wiping methods using Akua Intaglio Inks, and to experiment with printing in color.
