Event description

Description

This workshop will introduce you to a quick and easy version of collograph which avoids the drying time associated with glue and uses relief inking methods to produce prints using an etching press. You’ll use oil based ink, stencils, collage and textures to create an exciting series of prints. This taster session is a great introduction to the collograph technique.

What experience do I need?

This workshop is aimed at the complete beginner or someone who has attended one of our monoprint workshops and wants to add a new technique to their skills. Those who aren’t that confident about their drawing and imagery will also get a lot out of collograph – simple shapes and textures will get you a long way with this process!

What will I make?

You will make a series of unique prints from an A4 collograph plate onto A3 paper. In past sessions absolute beginners have come away with 20-30 prints!

Who is my tutor?

Joanna Wilkinson is a practising printmaker, illustrator and bookbinder. She uses printing, collage, analogue/slow photography and sometimes even old style colouring techniques like felt tips in her work. Joanna is currently studying for a MA Creative Practice at Leeds Arts University and is also a Co-operative Member of Leeds Print Workshop. She has been working with us over the last two years as a technician and tutor for printmaking and bookbinding. She has experience in teaching a wide variety of different groups of people including children and adults.

Do I need to bring anything?

All the materials needed to make collographs will be provided. This will include relief inks and rollers, card and textured tapes and papers to print on.

Students can bring sketchbooks, shapes, patterns or other images for inspiration, but this is not necessary – simple abstract shapes work well, and you can come up with ideas in the class.

If I can't attend can I get a refund?

We will refund you in full if you cancel no less than 14 days before the start of the course, after which no refunds will be issued. By making a booking you are agreeing to our full course terms and conditions which can be found on our website here.

What if the course is cancelled?

We reserve the right to cancel the course for any reason (for example, insufficient bookings). We will endeavour to give at least 7 days notice if the course is cancelled and in the event of cancellation we will, of course, issue you a full refund.

Accessibility

Our aim is to bring printmaking to as many people as possible but, due to the nature of the building, Leeds Print Workshop is not wheelchair accessible. There is a step up into the building and four steps down to the toilets, and no accessible toilet facilities. Should you have any questions, or wish to discuss accessibility before booking, please don't hesitate to email us at hello@leedsprintworkshop.org

Please note: we regret that, for safety reasons, only those over the age of 16 will be permitted to undertake the course.
