Collograph printing is a process that begins by using collage materials to build up a raised textured surface over any rigid substrates such as plexiglass, wood or cardboard to create a printing plate.

Inks and oils are applied to the textured surface and printed on paper and fabric.

Encaustic collograph uses wax in lieu of collage materials as a soft ground that can be incised, carved or built up and manipulated to hold ink and exploit the textures.

This class covers the basic techniques of encaustic collograph. Demonstrations will cover applying the wax, dry point etching, mark making, incising, embossing and the use of heated tools.

In depth overviews of printing inks and mediums as well as wiping techniques will also be covered.

Students will come away with a series of paintings they will be proud to hang on their wall.

Price: $290 + material costs
