Studio Arts Boulder is a non-profit art education organization that provides high-quality ceramics programs at the Boulder Pottery Lab and partners with other studio arts organizations for programs in other mediums. The “studio arts” are those art forms which require a substantial investment in equipment and facilities that is beyond the means of most individuals, such as ceramics, printmaking, woodworking, metal, glass, and fiber.

Open Lab will be closed Saturday, October 20 & Sunday, October 21 for the Kim Dickey workshop.

Friday Night Art: Collagraphy

A Collagraph print is made with different textures that are “collaged” onto a board. By using a variety of materials such as masking tape, textured paper or by using a cutting knife to draw into the surface of the plate, one achieves a print from inking the resulting “collage” and then transferring it to paper. There is no end to the possibilities with collagraph printing. It is an affordable and accessible way to practice printmaking without a press.
Renate will guide participants through the steps of making their own collagraph prints using textures and adhering cut paper to the surface of a board. She will also demonstrate the application of water-based ink and use of a barren to print the collagraph. Participants will go home with the knowledge needed to print multiples of the design made in class.

Date & Time: Friday, November 30th, 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
: $50
Instructor: Renate Mairie
Location: Pottery Lab children's room (stairs required)
