Collagraphy Printmaking Intensive Three-session Printmaking Studio 18+ / Saturday Eves October 19, 26, Nov 2 6:30pm-8:30pm In this 3-class intensive, get a feel for experimenting with various methods of collagraphy printmaking that can be used to design greeting cards, stationary, original artworks, gifts, surface design, and more. We will teach you how to use our small etching printing press, spoon-burnishing techniques, and other accessible methods of printmaking. We will also work with a variety of papers and inks to learn about using their effects and properties to make our prints come to life. No previous experience necessary! Our classes are a fun and casual learning environment for everyone. Since printmaking can be quite time-consuming, needing multiple iterations, proofing, and adjusting plate-technicalities to perfect your print, we'll first work on constructing smaller scale plates and then increase in size and complexity as we go. A collagraphy plate is basically low-relief collage adhered to a rigid surface, made from a variety of materials that are sealed, inked, wiped, and then printed to create extremely unique textural artwork multiples. Artists have historically used collagraphy as an extension of drawing and painting, notably utilizing found natural and manufactured materials to make whimsical narratives seem to appear and emerge out of the paper. Different materials will hold ink in various ways, creating a unique tone and contrast of surface effect. Multiple collagraphy prints can be layered on top of one another with different colored inks as well, and once dry, can be drawn back into or painted with watercolor. The cost of this course includes a materials fee which includes all ink, specialty printmaking papers, equipment, and textiles. We will explore several surprising approaches with this technique. Please bring your own smock or wear art studio clothes. We will use mostly washable inks for this process :)
