Collagraph is an exciting, unfussy and intuitive form of printmaking. The name comes, as the word suggests, from the word “collage” meaning to glue or to stick on. This type of printmaking allows you to create dynamic multi coloured prints in one pass through the press. In this intensive 2 day workshop you will learn how to build interesting textured printing plates to print from, using a variety of mediums and techniques; how to ink up your printing plate in both the intaglio manner (ink in the crevices below the surface of the plate). Finally you will also learn how to use “roll ups” of colour to add extra depth to the work before passing the plate through the press and creating your print.
I studied under a master printmaker, Peter Wray RE, at Handprint Studio in the UK and I hope to pass on his inspirational methods here in Toronto.
This workshop will be held in my home studio on Davenport Rd close to Casa Loma and Dupont Subway. Full payment is due upon registration. Email me to register or if you have any questions.
