Collagraph Techniques

This is a lovely spontaneous method of printing that relies on the textures that you can create on the surface of a plate. Once inked up the plate is placed on the press and soaked fabriano is placed on top. The palete is passed through the press and then there is always a lovely surprise when the paper is lifted from the plate to reveal the results.

In general we look at all the ways that a collagraph can be produced but also hopefully find some of our own methods. We look at dry point and at texture, we look at abstract and representational and we look at using multiple plates and the application of tissue to add yet further colour and texture.

You will produce at least one plate and one print in the daylong session.



I am a self trained artist and have developed a number of my own techniques, many of which are a simpler way of achieving detail. I will happily impart these methods.

We will also try using different papers and paint brushes as there is such a varying result with the vast array of tools available. But most of all we will be allowing the watercolour to shine with its own attributes and using the medium to its best advantage.


I have developed a number to collage techniques using the premise that anything goes. We will look at textures and at unusual painting methods and mixes to create our very own way of painting. This lesson an get messy! But is definitely good fun.


I love feltwork. The colours available and the mediums attributes are a delight to work with. With both utilitarian and decorative qualities the pieces created can be put to a variety of uses.

Using Pastel with Watercolour

This lesson explores methods of mixing watercolour with pastels. Their qualities can produce a number of different and useful mark making. The techniques are forgiving and can be worked into and on top of, allowing a very un-precious and more experimental, spontaneous approach to the work.

Pastel Landscapes

We will be looking at using broad marks and colour contrasts to capture the light and textures of our local landscapes. We will use a number of different papers that can add to the texture and create base colour that can enhance an image.
