Collagraph is a collage-based printing technique which encourages participants to make soft textural images.

This process is loose and responsive. In our workshop we will employ both dry and wet techniques to create imagery through textures. We will learn how to make collagraph imagery on plates, and how to ink, wipe, and print our collagraphs.

The instructor will cover: 

  • ​​​​The basics of how textured materials create tone
  • How to approach atmospheric imagery employing sandpaper, cutting, glue, vinyl, tape and fabric
  • How to ink plates with oil-based inks
  • How to print plates with an etching press​
