Printmaking / Collagraph Taster Workshop @ Villa Beaulieu Art & Design Studios

Collagraph printmaking is a process by which materials are applied and glued to, as well as scratched in, a surface creating various textures which is then inked, and a print taken.

Learn how to create experimental intaglio prints through an introduction to Collagraph printmaking. This card-based process is used to create rich surface textures and a deep velvet tone. The workshop will use an etching press to explore the creative possibilities of this process using both monochrome and colour techniques.
