ENCAUSTIC COLLAGRAPH: Mixed Media Printmaking with Jeff Hirst
This three-day workshop will explore printmaking with an experimental approach while encouraging intuitive thinking and play. Participants will create imagery using the encaustic collagraph process, chine colle, and hand work while using the press as a drawing tool. The class begins with an investigation of encaustic collagraphs and builds each day with the addition of chine colle and hand work. Multi-plate images will be demonstrated. We will use non-toxic water-based inks in addition to various drawing media. The emphasis of the class is image making and each participant will receive feedback and guidance in establishing their personal vision. Ah Haa will supply all Akua Intaglio inks, transparent and release agent. This cost is reflected in the class fee.
