Overview
Collagraph is a printmaking process that involves gluing materials to a rigid substrate such as mountboard or plexiglass to create a sculptural plate that can then be inked and printed. It is a wonderful introduction to printmaking since collagraph plates can be designed to print in either intaglio or relief! In this workshop we will explore the textures and tonal range achieved by experimenting with a wide variety of found materials.

Skills/Exercises
• Intaglio vs Relief: design, mark-making, ink application and plate wiping
• Creating test plates
• Achieving tonal range and texture
• Adding and subtracting marks
• Working with color: overprints, layering, and transparency
• Viscosity printing
• Printing: paper prep, registration, etc.

Projects
We will work toward completion of one or more of the following projects:
• Playing with tonal range: create a street scene or cityspace (can be abstract) and try to achieve as much tonal range as possible by using a wide variety of materials
• Dealer’s Choice: Botanical; Animal; Abstract. Create a collage of different textures in your subject.
• Ornamental pattern design
