Tutor: Rob White

Cost: £220, includes acrylic sheet 30 x 40cm, inks and proofing paper.

 

Using carborundum grit and acrylic mediums, you will make two collagraph plates that can be printed together to create a multi layered and colourful print. Designed to run alongside our studio exhibition of collagraph prints by James Anderson, you will have the opportunity to study the prints in the exhibition as well as looking at examples by artists Gillian Ayres and Howard Hodgkin, Michelle Avison and Rob White. This painterly medium uses easily sourced materials, and is a great introduction to non-toxic printmaking as you will make the plates solely using acrylic painting mediums. There will be lots of discussion about markmaking, with the opportunity to try different ways of applying the materials, and expert help on planning colour and inking combinations.
