Paper Collagraph Printing

Examples of Erin Ricardo's cards and collagraph prints, featuring watercolour backgrounds.

Join Umbrella and our recent PressNorth Makerspace resident and exhibiting artist Erin Ricardo to create a range of paper collagraphs and cards. Erin will guide participants through this fun and easy process which involves adhering textured materials onto a printing plate, then using this to print with. Participants will develop their own designs throughout the workshop (including background colouring), and can choose to create cards or flat prints. Collagraph cards make great gifts!  

Beginners to the collagraph printing technique are encouraged to attend and expand their creative skill-set. Participants should wear closed-in shoes and older clothing or bring a smock or apron as art-making can get messy! All other materials will be provided.

Limited to 10 spaces | Bookings close 4pm Friday 18 February 2022
