1 Day, December 13 from 10am-4pm
Instructor is Tammy Ratcliff.
If you love working with fine tissue papers or are a printmaker looking for new techniques, this one-day workshop could be just what you are looking for. Chine collé, meaning pasted tissue, is a printmaking technique where traditionally, an artist prints their plate image onto a lightweight paper while simultaneously pasting it to a heavier weight paper using a press. We will explore ways to do this as well as more experimental techniques with layering or building images using a variety of lovely handmade, textured and coloured papers. If you already have some prints or a plate that you would like to incorporate into the workshop, please contact the instructor to make sure it will work with our equipment. All materials are included. Participants are encouraged to bring an apron and their sketchbook. We will be using etching presses and archival materials in a solvent-free space.
