10.30am – 3.30pm
Taking cues from Ellie’s collections of Travel Posters; participants will explore texture, colour and composition though the process of collagraph printing.
Collagraph is an experimental method of printmaking where textured materials are collaged onto a plate which hold or resist ink so when printed, bold imagery is generated with a range of tones and textures.
The session will begin with a walk around the grounds of Harewood House to collect imagery to use during the session. Participants will then use a variety of tapes and collage materials to design their collagraph plates followed by inking their plates in a variety of colours and printing them using an etching press. Ellie will guide participants through the whole process and demonstrate different ways to achieve textural effects and tonal colour placement.
Participants will leave with a small collection of A4 unique, multi-textured prints that beautifully depict the landscapes of Harewood House.
A seasonal lunch is included in your workshop ticket as well as access to Harewood’s House, Grounds and Gardens. For full opening times, click here.
