Learn an exciting form of printmaking from handmade plates.
Carborundum printing is an exciting form of collagraph where highly textured plates are made using carborundum grit (finely ground metal particles). This process lends itself to approaching print with a painterly perspective, the allowance of collage processes, and combining plates in unique and possibly collaborative ways. In this workshop, students will explore mark-making techniques and surface development, approaches to inking, and pulling finished prints. Come embrace this playful form of printmaking for a new experience or to add to your repertoire!
