ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

Silk Collagraph, is a non-acid method of working a print plate where the image is created by painting with whitened acrylic medium on a black silk surface backed with plastic, to produce a variety of tones & textures. The plate is then inked, wiped (like a metal plate), and printed on an etching press. Plates are easy to cut and durable for large editions. Designed for both beginners and more advanced students.
