The collograph is literally collage printing at its best. In this course, participants will learn to make inexpensive, non-toxic, extremely direct printmaking plates that can be printed using a variety of techniques including relief and intaglio. Plates can be made with fabric, glue, tape, acrylic mediums, metal grit and certain found objects. Plates can be easily shaped and take advantage of such supports as scrap mat and chip board. In additional to the most direct of textural outcomes, we will explore the subtle working surfaces as well as photographic possibilities. Instruction will cover the creation and printing of the collograph plates.
