Explore the experimental technique of Collagraph, using texture rich plates that produce results with a feeling that is unique to this mixed media approach to plate making. This class is perfect for printmakers of all levels.
In this class you will use matboard and plexiglass plates combined with a number of found materials to create your plates, explore image making using texture and low relief collage, try out a variety of inking methods and learn how to use an etching press to create a small collection of prints.
