Making a collagraph is a simple and low tech way to create a printing plate. First you make a texture collage on a cardboard plate and then seal it with a layer of aluminum foil. Ink is applied the entire plate and then the surface is wiped clean, allowing ink to stay in the grooves and textures. It is then run through the etching press and printed onto dampened paper. Multiple prints can be created from one plate. Textured collage materials will be provided, but if you have some intriguing textures—papers, vegetable mesh bags, etc-feel free to bring them along.
