Collagraph plates are used in printmaking to combine texture and color together to generate an image that can be easily combined with other print making techniques, stand on its own as a single work and/or as a series of prints. An experimental form of printmaking, collagraph prints can be made with many different materials, including cardboard, yarn, fabric, leaves, masking tape and more. In this 4-hour workshop the group will learn 2 different approaches to constructing collagraphs. All materials supplied. No advanced preparation is necessary. All levels welcomed.
