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, a shift in tone or printing surface, or for mounting purposes.  In this introductory workshop, artists will gain insight into the chine collé process by working with delicate Asian papers through demonstrations and individual work with the instructor.  How to work with these 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), basic collage techniques, proper dampening and misting techniques, plate and press preparation.  You can expect to gain skill in this technique so that you can apply it to your own work. While this is a demonstration based workshop, you will have the afternoon to work with your own plates.

Participants must bring their own printing plates. Paper and inks provided. All levels, but previous printing experience is recommended.
