Collagraph & Drypoint Course, Slaughterhaus Print Studio


Sunday 8 & 15 September 2019, 10.00-4.00pm

Tutor: Ian Rawlinson

Cost: £150. All materials included.

On this course you will explore collagraph and drypoint techniques, using cardboard surfaces. Collagraph is a collaged printing plate with huge possibilities of mark making- it is an inexpensive technique that allows you to recycle and re-use materials and create a really wide range of different effects. You will work on a traditional varnished collagraph block, cutting, sticking and adding textured materials to the surface, and a more experimental unvarnished version. You will explore surface, texture and imprinting using found materials such as fabrics, textured papers, tape & moulding paste. You will indent and scratch into the surfaces to make drypoint marks. You will then be able to print your collagraphs using both relief and intaglio techniques, reworking the blocks and layering colour to develop a series of exciting prints.
