Collagraph Workshop (704)
with Jeffrey Winkelmann Evergreen
Sunday, March 4, 1:30-4:30 p.m., Print Studio
Members: $50, Non-Member $60
Collagraph printmaking uses a variety of common materials to create a mixed-media printing surface that can be printed either as an intaglio or relief. Paste, sand, wallpaper, lace, gauze, string, plant fibers, tape, or just carving the surface will create texture and carry the ink to the surface of your paper. Materials and paper will be provided to help get you started, but students are strongly encouraged to bring in their own textures to use and share. To register for this workshop, click here.
