Collagraphy is a printmaking process in which materials are applied to a rigid substrate (such as paperboard or wood). The plate can be intaglio-inked and/or surface rolled. When the matrix is printed with an etching press realistic detail of the materials used may result. Substances such as acrylic texture mediums, carborundum, sandpapers, textiles, cut cardboard, natural dried materials, flattened leaves, etc. can all be used in creating the collagraph plate. For this workshop we will work with these materials on a thin board 8 x10.

Simultaneously we will each prepare a small Silk Collagraph plate 8x10. This nontoxic multi-step Silk Aquatint is a ‘maniere noire’ technique—working from dark to light; white acrylic is painted on a blackened silk surface that has been laminated to a smooth plastic sheet, allowing grey to bright white wash tones to be built.

Different tonal effects and vibrant colors can be achieved with the technique due to the depth of relief from the collagraph plate's highly textured surface and the Silk Collagraph's fabric weave. Collagraphy is a very open printmaking method.

Participants are encouraged to bring drawings, collages, print, and photo ideas and potential collage collagraph materials to the first day of the workshop.

Lab fee of $20 (paid to the teacher in class) covers supplies plus one sheet of paper. Extra paper will be available for purchase, or bring your own.
