Come explore the exciting medium of collagraph printmaking with artist
Kathleen Buchanan in this two day workshop on Oct 21 and 22 2017
A collagraph is a unique form of printmaking where artists build collages of paper and acrylic to use as a printing surface. The collage plates are rubbed with ink and run through a press to create beautifully textured images. Students will be introduced to all the basics of printmaking, learning how to design and construct a collagraph plate, how to choose inks and paper, and how to operate an etching press to create the print. Saturday is dedicated to an introduction to the medium and building our printing plates, while Sunday will be spent printing an edition of our images. No prior experience is necessary- if you can cut and glue paper, then you can create a beautiful collagraph!
Class fee of $250 includes all materials.
Class meets Saturday 9-5, Sunday 10-4.
Recommended for artists in high school and adults.
