About this Workshop:
In this workshop, students will learn how to make textural collages and print them using their wet handmade paper. Collagraphy is a printmaking method that is based in collage, where textures and colors are applied to a substrate. Students will create relief plates out of plexiglass, foamcore, mat board, textiles, tapes, and found materials. They will also learn how to make paper specifically suited for this method of printing. Students will receive demonstrations in collagraph making, pulling handmade papermaking sheets, hand printing, embossing, and paper cast techniques.
Level: Intermediate: Introduction to Hand Papermaking or similar experience (6 hours) required.
Registration extended through November 26, 2022. Material fees are included with your registration covering all of the necessary materials for class.
