Introduction to the Marvelous Collagraph
In this one-day introductory class we will explore the many possibilities of the collagraph print. Collagraphs are beautiful, often experimental prints made from collaging textured items onto a matboard or similar surface, then sealing it and applying inks to print it onto paper.
This is a very inexpensive, flexible and rewarding technique that results in rich, textured prints. This class is suitable for anyone interested in expanding their printmaking repertoire- no experience necessary, but certainly a great technique for any printmaker to incorporate into their work. Collagraphs can be easily combined with other techniques such as monotype and gravure, or stand proudly alone.
