Artists will work with hot wax to create their printmaking matrix and to enhance their print practice. The fluid nature of this collagraph method is appealing for its versatility and ease of manipulation. Wax is applied to a plexiglass substrate using gestural brushwork, then further carved and incised for textural effects. Found objects can be stamped and embedded, linear elements layered with hot tools, tape and stencils used for precise geometry and image definition. Plates will be printed with Akua soy-based inks used both as intaglio and relief. Additional explorations include multiple plate monotypes and chine collé applications.
Saturday & Sunday, 10:30 am – 4:30 pmMarch 12 & 13 (weekend intensive)
Limited to 6 students
Course fee includes $30 for materials
