Location Leicester Print Workshop 
Date & Time Sunday 8th March 
10.00am - 4.00pm.
Tutor  Nichola Hingley

Inspired by the vibrant sharp edge works by printmakers Rana Begum and Charles Shearer you will have the opportunity to create collagraph prints using cut line, multiple shaped plates, collage and colour.

Using thick card, you will cut and peel layers to reveal different tones and textures. The addition of cut lines brings in a wonderful drawn quality. Colourful and full of energy, Collagraphs are a great, quick way of exploring pattern and form. 

Shaping the plates is a unique quality to Collagraphs and allows lots of chances and opportunities to be taken with composition and narrative. 

This is the perfect printmaking session for beginners and those looking for a refresher with an edge!
