Experience a technique in printmaking that uses a textural collage-like surface, but can have the range and nuance of intaglio. Using matboard as a base plate, textures such as fabric, sandpaper, string and various papers are glued to the matboard and coated with acrylic polymer. Painterly textures can be created with modeling paste and gesso. Any style of art, abstract or representational, is applicable to the collagraph. There is no acid biting or exotic tools. The collagraph plate is printed with etching ink in an etching press. No experience is necessary to explore this wonderful technique!

(Saturday Part 1 and Sunday Part 2)

This workshop is designed to produced finished work which may be included in an exhibition held at the Ink Shop together with book produce by workshop participants from San Diego Book Arts

"Since 1985, when I dove into Artists' Books, my passion has been in inventing new structures for my works, Turning Leaves is one of my inventions. Imagine a box, cut it in quarters diagonally. Then we have four empty spaces. They will be hinged to a piece of flat cardboard so that they are connected. To cover and to fill the empty spaces is where your artistry comes in. You could use your own print proofs or purchased decorative papers, and collage with 2- and 3-dimensional materials is encouraged. The spaces will be filled with materials from nature (e.g., dry leaves, nuts, shells) or perhaps a broken mirror (in the case of Turning Leaves). The structure can be moved into many positions to become sculptural and architectural."
