Collage and Print

Dates: 20th & 21st of October

Fee: $300.00

Tutor, Wim de Vos


An introduction to an expressive way of mark making with print in conjunction with collage.

Participants will use selected images from magazines or other sources to create several collages, they will then work on mark making with water or oil based materials on Perspex plates.

The plates can be used to make monoprints or may be engraved for intaglio printing or a combination of both. The print images will be made over or in combination with the collages.

Day 1, Preparation of collages and Perspex plates.

Day 2, Inking, drawing/painting on plates, and printing and combining with collages.
