Intro to Collagraph (April)

Collagraph is an amazingly versatile printmaking process. It is based on the construction of a collaged matrix to create a printable plate. A wide range of materials and textured surfaces such as fabric, leaves, sand, and other found materials can be used in the plate-making process. Plates can be printed as intaglio or relief images, or as combinations of the two. No prerequisite required. All levels are welcome.
