About the Workshop:

This in-person class at Center for Book Arts is taught by instructor Amber Braverman.

Students will learn to play with pressure printing plates through the creation of dynamic collagraph plates and experimental materials. Utilizing a combination of prints students will create stand-alone prints or images to pair with traditional metal or wood type to create beautiful broadsides and posters. Students will come away with a new knowledge of collagraph plates, Vandercook press use, and ink mixing. This is a great way for printers to experiment and create something unique!

Required Materials:

  • Pencil
  • Snap blade or Xacto knife
  • Notebook

All other materials will be provided by Center for Book Arts at no additional cost.
