Collagraph Printing

Today we spent the morning experimenting with collagraphs. Plates were prepared in advance using a mixture of resources to give a textured effect. This included lace, masking tape, scrim, polyfilla, wallpaper, glue etc. which was then varnished to prevent the plate from disintegrating.

Isobelle gave a great demonstration to get everyone started. After preparing the plate with ink she put it through her Sissix machine and hey presto she had some wonderful images

And before long there were plenty more lovely images to admire!
