February 18 | Collagraph Printing 101 (1 Day)

This 4-hour workshop introduces students to the process of creating a mixed-media matrix that is printed in relief. Understanding how collaged materials visually transform when printed in relief will show students the transformative property of printmaking.

Students will gain familiarity with collagraph printing, plate wiping techniques, and relief printing. By the end of class, all students will have a finished collagraph plate and have at least one print of the plate in black ink on white paper.

This class would benefit students who are looking for an experimental and abstract way to understand the fundamentals of printmaking.
