Creating Encaustic Collagraphs on YUPO

Saturday and Sunday, March 26-27, 2022


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-based 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.
