Tuesday Print Club - Collagraph
|Location||Leicester Print Workshop|
|Date & Time||Tuesday 5th September
- Tuesday 10th October
11am - 1pm.
Print Club is an opportunity to gain confidence and build printmaking skills as part of a small group in a technician led series of sessions.
Focusing on one technique: Collagraph, over six weeks, the first week will comprise teaching and demonstrations, whilst subsequent weeks take the form of self-directed, guided sessions, encouraging participants to use the time to explore and experiment with the technique.
Collagraph involves adding layers of adhesive or solid materials and collage to the surface of a printing plate, in addition scoring and drawing into the surface of the plate. This therefore makes it possible to incorporate both intaglio and relief methods on one plate. Standard collagraph plates are normally made out of card and coated in a French polish to seal the plate after the image has been created.
