This is the perfect technique for those who wish to experiment with tone, numerous textures and collage techniques. Learn how to create and print collograph plates using both relief and intaglio methods, using both drawings and found objects for texture and tone.
What will you learn?
The term ‘Collography’ is derived from the Greek words ‘collo’ (meaning glue) and ‘graph’ (meaning the activity of drawing).
Collography (also spelt Collagraphy) is both an intaglio and relief printmaking technique. Collographs can be produced without a high amount of technical knowledge, making it the ideal starting point for beginners in printmaking.
The creation of a Collograph plate is more akin to a sculpting process than anything else. This method, both unpredictable and spontaneous, is a process where experimentation and curiosity rewards the artist.
