Collagraphs: Intro to Mixed Media Printmaking 

Collagraphs incorporate aspects of relief and intaglio printmaking, additive and subtractive methods of working, all in an intriguing mixed media approach to plate-making. Think texture printing; using everyday objects (cardboard, lace, washers, yarn) transformed into textural elements enhancing your unique prints. Take an individualized approach in what can be either objective or non-objective subject matter.   Thurs. July 11 and July 18,   11 a.m. - 4 p.m. $155/$20 materials   Students supply papers for printing.

It just sounds difficult, not really so hard, but it gives you bragging rights! You will be sure to impress your friends or family with your bookmaking skills when you show them this creation. An exposed stitching design on the spine of the book resembles a herringbone pattern.  This book is designed to lie flat when open which allows for ease in drawing or writing. Makes a great gift! Previous book making is recommended, but not required. Minimal supplies are necessary to continue making beautiful books at home. Fri. July 26, 12:30 - 4:30   $70/$15 materials  (Papers will be available for purchase if you need for your signatures, see supply list for more information.)
