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.
