What's on


Saturday 7th May 2022
11am – 3pm

During the workshop you will explore basic collagraph methods using a range of textured papers, vinyls, glues, etc. Textures are added to the plate (mountboard) much like a collage. These collaged pieces can then be inked up to create collagraph print. Emphasis will be on learning collagraph techniques by making a series of abstract prints exploring colour and texture. The session will include making a collagraph plate from scratch, followed by inking and printing methods. You will explore using both relief and intaglio methods to create a range of images.

Your tutor : Cath Brooke

Cath Brooke has been making prints since she was first hooked at an evening class at Leeds College of Art over 20 years ago. She has been facilitating community arts projects for many years including teaching print to beginners and those with experience.

Cath’s own practice is inspired by urban and industrial landscapes. Much of her work is based on sketches around the Redcar area, the North and South Gare and the recently closed steelworks. Many of her works combine drypoint, monoprint and collagraph methods. Her approach to producing prints starts with an idea developed from sketches, which then evolves as the process takes over and she responds to the unexpected marks and colours in each layer.

Cath has been a member at WYPW for many years and is a member of Inkers printmakers, a group originally formed at the print workshop to share ideas, exhibit together and promote printmaking in the region.
