Collagraph Prints: Constructed Impressions
Sunday, Apr 5 | 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
1985 Thompson Road

Session 2 of 2
Session 1 of 2 is on April 4th

In this playful approach to printmaking, students will learn to create their own collagraph plates by gluing found materials to thin pieces of cardboard and then printing them using various hand-burnishing techniques that can later be duplicated at home. Through informal discussions, students will also learn about other aspects of the printmaking process, including composition, registration and editioning. Each student will leave the workshop with a unique print and the basics for printing more! Please note this workshop includes 2 sessions on 2 different days.

Maria Tratt‘s visual art practice draws on personal memory to create paintings and prints that explore figures and their spirit animals in imagined contexts of origin.

Please bring organic or in-organic thin elements (such as string/ yarn, fabric, mesh, leaves, etc.) that can be glued to the plate to create the image.
