Collagraphy Workshop Weekend

Collagraphy workshop Tutor: Helen Brooker On this 2 day workshop you will design, construct and make prints from a collagraph plate. You will also have the opportunity to experiment with block printing and chine collé (a process of applying delicate papers) to add additional layers of colour or texture to your prints. About Collagraphy Constructing a collagraph plate is refreshingly low tech, made in the manner of collage – cutting, layering and sticking - but resulting in beautiful and versatile prints. Different materials (papers, tin foil, lace, sandpaper etc) are glued onto a rigid board to create a variety of surface textures. This is then sealed with varnish or PVA and once dry can be inked and wiped in different ways to create even more effects. The plate is then printed on dampened paper using an etching press.

About the Tutor Helen Brooker is a printmaker who uses many techniques including collagraph, linocut, screenprint and chine colle to create beautiful and ethereal works. Helen has been a member of RESORT since 2015. More info This workshop is suitable for beginners and those with some printmaking experience. The workshop is limited to 6 participants. All materials will be provided but you may want to bring a sketchbook/notebook. You will be given a protective apron to wear but we advise you not to wear your best clothes, just in case. The workshop runs from 10.30am to 4.30pm, Saturday to Sunday, with an hour break for lunch. Please aim to arrive at 10.20am on Saturday so we can start on time.
