Collography is a very expressive printmaking technique that utilizes a collaged, textured plate to create both bold and subtle visual effects. It is an exciting medium on its own, and adds a wonderful textural element when combined with other printmaking methods. Build collaged collograph plates and learn the basics of intaglio and relief printmaking at the same time. Plate making, color mixing, ink application, and press operation will be covered. This workshop is designed for anyone who loves texture and wants a hands-on experience. This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience.
