This 2-day intensive workshop will explore printmaking with an experimental approach and encourage intuitive thinking and play.  Participants will create imagery using encaustic collagraph processes, chine colle, and hand-drawing applications while exploring the second-generation image that comes off the press.  Multi-plate images will be demonstrated and students will create multicolor prints.  The emphasis of the class is image making and each participant will receive feedback and guidance in creating their personal vision.
