Day 1 – Plate making
All hand pulled printing starts with a printing plate – you will experience many different techniques from cutting, peeling back, melting to adhering many different types of textured components to add to your personal printing plate. I provide a comprehensive array of textured materials for the student to pore through and use) These plates are sealed overnight and left to dry.

Day 2 – Printing
Each student selects the colours they want and I demonstrate the inking up processes, explaining the many different ways to load your printing plate. The rest of the day is spent inking and printing using my traditional printing press. At the end of the day each student takes home up to 5 printed images printed on 300 gram Somerset paper, ready to be mounted and framed down the line.
When I am teaching I am determined to bring out the hidden potential in every student and to ensure each student goes away having achieved a beautiful hand pulled collagraph print they are proud enough to show to their friends and family.
