About this process

Collography, as an intaglio method of printmaking, is a robust and direct way of creating a print from varying layers, cut-out from the surface.

The collograph block is created out of heavyweight card, making it the perfect surface to cut and draw into with tools and implements to create lines, blocks of tone and/or any mark-making. The block can also be treated as a base, upon which items and objects are collaged and glued to create tone, shape and texture in areas amongst which the ink will pick up details. Using heavyweight cotton-rag paper, the collograph block is then inked up using the intaglio method (pushing the ink into the removed sections of the block’s surface) and printed using an Intaglio press.

This is the perfect technique for those who love experimenting with mark-making and tones and would like to learn how to produce a series of prints.
