Collagraph: Shape, Texture, Color
with Kelsey Miller
July 9th, 1 day: Tuesday
10 AM - 4 PM
Cost: $175

In this 1-day workshop, participants will learn to construct a printing plate from materials including paper, fabric, modeling paste, and sandpaper.
Derived from Greek “colla” (glue) and “graph” (draw), collagraphs offer great flexibility in image building through color, texture, and easily shaped plates.
Participants will learn relief and intaglio inking techniques, stenciling, paper handling, and use of a press as they print a small run of multi-colored collagraph plates.

Kelsey Miller is a multi-disciplinary artist who was born and raised in Antigua, West Indies, and now lives in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. Her work is guided by everyday cycles—the rapid pace of news and weather, the slow build of archives and observations—toward an iterative practice of recording, altering, accumulating, and distributing that manifests in prints and large-scale installations. In recent years, Miller has participated in artist residencies with the Arctic Circle Residency in the International Territory of Svalbard and Proyecto ‘Ace in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Her work has been exhibited in venues in Italy, Argentina, and throughout the United States in solo, juried, and small group shows. Miller is a 2019 recipient of the MacColl Johnson Fellowship from the Rhode Island Foundation.

All levels welcome.
