EBSQ Chat Room
Collagraph - literally a print from a collage - is a highly versatile and exciting printmaking process. Whereas collage is usually the assembly of several different images, collagraph is the of different textures to produce a single image, which can be as simple or as complex as you like. It is suitable for children or for fine artists.
Collagraph appeals to artists who like an experimental approach to image making, trial and error, the happy accident and surprises. It is wonderful for creating rich textures and marks. It is an economical process and I will show you how you can use scraps and commonly found materials.
Each print from a collagraph plate will be different, so it can be called a monoprint or 'one of a kind' which adds value.
UK artist and printmaker Paul Helm spent 25 years in the commercial print and publishing industry. He has also had his own picture framing business and gallery. Traditional printmaking has always interested him and he likes to combine different techniques.
