Introduction to Collagraphy
Join artist Sharon Loddey to create, and print from, your own Collagraph plate. Collagraphy is a really versatile printing process in which a textured plate is inked up and put through a press. Different textures hold varying amounts of ink and print different tones. Anything with a low relief texture can be stuck down and used: wallpaper, leaves, fabrics, tapes and threads etc. The collagraph plate is then varnished and can be printed intaglio or relief.
Making a collograph plate is great fun and uses found materials. We will be using a method that utilises aluminium tape.
