This two day workshop will explore a unique and spontaneous approach to printmaking. A collagraph print is made from a collage of a variety of materials glued together onto a plate. The collaged plate is then inked and printed to produce a richly textured and embossed image. Students will prepare, create and print their own plates in consultation with the instructor. The workshop is suitable as an introduction to printmaking or for artists who want to learn a new process. Students familiar with collagraph printing will be able to expand their knowledge and develop their imagery.

For the Love of Printmaking:
Two Influential Local Printmakers
Jan 23 – Feb 24, 2019

Betty Jean Drummond and Marijke Nap were members of Dundarave Print Workshop for many years. Their enthusiasm for printmaking was infectious. Both experimented with their craft in response to the world around them. Betty Jean found joy in nature and the environment creating colourful, richly textured works in collagraphs and etchings. Marijke’s work speaks to social inequalities by exploration through digital and etched collages. Please join us in honouring the memory and the work of these two influential and important print artists.
