    The Folkhouse in Bristol is offering a collograph course with mixed media artist Kerry.

    Week one was the first class of term and we have been relief printing, (image below), it will be intaglio week next time, we are having lots of fun playing with textures.

    A collograph is a technique where a collage of materials are glued on to a printing plate, (which is a square of mount board in our case), when the glue is dry, it is shellaced or varnished, printing inks are applied and put through a press to produce a print.
