This one-day workshop will focus on the printmaking process covering collograph on heavy card with found objects.  Andrew will lead the class in a variety of ways to create an additive intaglio plate with glue, papers and found objects such as flowers feathers, and leaves. You will also learn mark-making methods using both traditional and inventive tools.  Each student will be introduced to  how to develop an image and how to select the best method to create a small folio of prints
