Using a combination of innovative printmaking materials, participants will create encaustic collagraph plates using hot wax on Awagami washi papers and Yupo. Images will be painted with brushes, stamped with found objects, textured and scraped to produce a high and low plate surface ideal for either relief or intaglio inking. A second drypoint plate is then created to add linear elements to the textured and tonal encaustic collagraph print. This two-plate process yields prints with depth and rich color overlays. Further workshop explorations will include transparent inking strategies and working with both traditional print papers and washi. This is a workshop that expands your printmaking vocabulary in a new and exciting way.
We thank Awagami Factory for providing sample washi packets for each student attending this workshop.
