Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th May 2022
Learn collagraph printing under the tutelage of printmaker Charles Shearer. This two-day workshop will introduce you to a printing process that would suit anyone wishing to experiment and develop their creative ideas. No previous experience of print should be a barrier though some dexterity with a craft knife may prove an advantage.
You will be instructed in all aspects of cardboard cut (collagraphic) plate production, from techniques in drawing and cutting using a range of tools, some adapted or adopted specifically for this purpose, through to the application of textured materials that give this process its unique character. You will also learn about inks and papers and the machines involved in generating these exciting images. Learn to use carborundum powder, cloth, embossed papers, tape and feathers etc.
10am - 4pm
All of our workshops take place in our studio at 22 Arun Business Park, Shripney Road, Bognor Regis, PO22 9SX.
