Workshop: Collagraph Printing
[ Workshop )
This workshop provides a perfect introduction to both relief (raised) and intaglio (engraved) collagraph printing and you will have a chance to make a series of prints using both these methods, drawing inspiration from the collagraph works in the Hockney to Himid exhibition. This is a highly experimental, versatile and fun type of printmaking, for which you need no prior experience.
What is Collagraph Printing?
Collagraph printing is a versatile printing process in which a textured plate is created by sticking a collage of different materials to a plate which is then inked up and put through a press.
This workshop is taught by Charlotte Cranidge. Charlotte regularly creates and delivers a range of arts projects for people of all ages and abilities that experiment with creative processes and encourage social interaction. She specialises in creating conversational sessions, delivering creative practical workshops and participatory projects. Her focus is to deliver programmes and events that focus storytelling, playfulness, inquisitiveness and experimentation – asking participants to engage in multiple processes to create their own works.
Presently, Charlotte’s practice focuses more on a broader range of materials and working collaboratively with communities. Focusing more on the outcomes that emerge from basic materials, adopting non-conventional treatments of materials and aesthetic potential. However, the roots of her practice lie in painting and printmaking – specialisms she frequently returns too.
