PR 604CW Collagraph: Printing the Collage


with Christine Stoughton

Calendar Apr 19, 2020 at 10 am

Explore the art of the collagraph, in which a textured collage is transformed into a printed image. This creative and accessible process promotes a tactile experience both in the making of the plate – in which fabric, yarn, natural forms and other found materials are glued down to a rigid surface – and in the implied texture of the printed form. No prior collage or printmaking experience is necessary. All levels welcome.

* Please note the workshop duration is 2 Saturdays.

Learning Objectives

• Students will learn how to construct a textured collage which can be successfully printed.

• Students will learn how to print their collages either as an intaglio print or a relief print.

• Students will learn how to print their collages using both an etching press and hand printing techniques.

• Students will produce work that can form the basis for mixed media Images.

• Students will learn how to enhance their initial printed collages through the addition of selected monoprinting techniques.
