Join us for a fun evening of experimental printmaking in an open studio setting! Collography is a dynamic printmaking technique that transforms everyday objects into unique textural imagery.

In this hands-on workshop, participants will compose their own images by assembling pre-made collagraph plates. This is a fun and dynamic way of exploring objects and images in a welcoming space. No prior printmaking experience is needed, and all materials are provided. Expert guidance will be on hand to support your creative journey. Just bring your enthusiasm and a willingness to get your hands a little messy—aprons recommended!

Participants can expect to finish the 3 hour workshop with at least five unique 8” x 11”prints and hands on experience inking a collagraphy plate and operating an etching press.
