Create your own personalised cards using collagraph relief printmaking techniques.
Learn how to create stunning simple prints using the collagraph technique. Using cardboard plates, great results can be created by simply scratching, cutting, sticking, layering or drawing. Once the design is created, the plates are inked and printed for individual colourful and exciting creations. Black and white prints are very striking and the coloured inks produce surprising and unexpected effects.
On this one day fun practical workshop, Annabel will be focussing on teaching you how to use this technique to make your very own personalised and unique festive prints which you can then use as Christmas cards or even frame for personalised gifts.
By the end of the day you will be going home with a range of your own prints, plus the knowledge on how to continue this fabulous craft at home.
Suitable for any level of experience and no drawing experience is required.
