In this 3 part workshop, participants will explore texture and form in the uniquely sculptural process of Collagraph printing. Collagraph encourages experimentation through reusing and recycling found textures of all types. Participants will learn how to control value and line through a variety of methods of collaging mixed materials onto a print matrix, as well as the subtleties of inking and wiping a plate. Participants will leave this workshop with an edition of original prints pulled off an etching press.
Materials for collaging will be provided, however, participants are encouraged to bring any materials they feel inspired by, including but not limited to, lace, plant material, bubble wrap, string, or even locks of hair! Feel free to get weird.
