Collagraph Printmaking

April 30 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

$135.00 – $185.00

Do you like to cut, paste, incise, emboss, deboss and impress? Do you like to scatter stencils to see what happens on the other side of the press? Then collagraph could be for you! Using matte board as a base, we will explore two methods for plate-making—“cut and paste” and “impressed”—and learn how to seal them. We will practice intaglio, relief and a la poupee inking methods with water-soluble and oil inks. We will create stencils to add pop and dimension to our prints. Each person will complete at least two plates, or as many as they can manage over the four weeks, and pull their prints as a series and/or as monoprints. Bring reference images, project ideas, or thoughts on alternate plate materials. There will be (fun) homework!

Class content will include: Platemaking with matte board as base, inking, making and using stencils, and pulling prints as series or monoprint. Class dates: April 30, May 7, 14, 21.

About the instructor: Karin Eberhardt came to printmaking through a Waterfall Arts class in 2018 and has never looked back. What she loves most about pulling prints is the constant encounter with the unexpected. Collagraph in particular satisfies a tactile itch to pull together whatever is at hand and make something of it. Karin also makes artist books, letterpress and literature. In 2021 she was lucky to apprentice with printmaking mentor Karin Otto through a grant from the Maine Crafts Association’s Craft Apprenticeship Program. Formal arts training includes a long-ago semester at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Brussels, Belgium and more recent M.F.A. in Creative Writing from the University of Southern Maine.  After twenty-odd years of life in Asia, Karin now nests in an old hayfield in Albion, Maine where bobolink raise their young every summer.
