Collagraph prints stand out from prints made by other printmaking techniques because of their 3 dimensional quality created by varied textures. Part collage and part printmaking, collagraphs are made by gluing a variety of materials to the plate which is inked either like an etching, or as a relief (lino or woodcut), sometimes both way, before being printed on a press. The textures and values achieved are expressive and rich in tone.
Bonnie Baker will guide you through an exploration of the Collagraph technique starting with Building a Plate (Materials and Textures), Printing Collagraphs (as an etching and relief or in combination ) and Printing Multi-Colour Collagraphs.
