Creating Encaustic Collagraphs on Yupo

Falmouth Art Center

Saturday and Sunday, November 6 & 7 from 10am to 3:00pm

Using a combination of innovative printmaking materials, participants will create plates with hot wax on Yupo, a synthetic paper support. Images can be painted, stamped, textured, incised and scraped to produce a high and low plate surface ready to ink as either a relief or intaglio. These plates can be combined with monotype and drypoint, are economical, easily cleaned, stored and cut with scissors or utility knives. Akua soy base inks will be used on a variety of print papers including washi (Japanese paper). Both hand and press printing options will be explored as well as the use of multiple color plates, transparency and chine colle'. Part of the learning experience will include discussions of eastern and western papers, demonstrations, finished examples of all techniques and lots of individual attention. All are welcome, some print experience is helpful but not necessary.
