Participants will spend two days making and printing their own collagraph plates with the tuition and guidance of Yorkshire-based printmaker, Hester Cox.

Day 1
• See examples of different kinds of printing plates & the images that they produce.
• Hester will discuss and demonstrate the different ways of creating a collagraph plate.
• Design your own printing plates using a variety of methods and collage materials.
• Seal your plates ready for the following day’s printing session.

Day 2
• A short demonstration by Hester of the inking up & printing of a collagraph plate.
• Inking up & using the etching press to print the plates that you created the day before. The exciting moment of peeling back the paper to reveal your own original print!
