A collagraph is a print made from a collage of various materials glued together on cardboard, plexiglass, wooden boards, etc. Students will explore different ways to create plates using mediums, fabrics, sand, and found objects, using basic relief, intaglio and embossing printing techniques on an etching press, creating dimensional prints. Collagraphs can be combined with many other printing methods such as letterpress. Finished prints can be used for book covers and as the contents of books. Sample collagraphs will be shown and explained. All participants are encouraged to experiment and discover their own collagraph methods. Open to all skill levels.
