Two day Collograph Workshop

Tuesday 16th October - Wednesday 17th October

10 - 3.30pm

What is a collagraph?

 A collagraph printing plate is made by gluing thin textured materials, or applying liquid materials, to a rigid surface and then ink is applied to the suface and transferred onto paper using a press. A huge variety of materials can be used, the only requirement is that they are thin and able to withstand being compressed. It is one of the most instinctive forms of printmaking as the artist interacts directly with the materials and it allows play and experimentation. The resulting prints are exciting, innovative and free. And with the limitless supply of materials that can be sourced from our recycling bin or DIY store it is cheap as well!
