In this class students will learn to create handmade plates from low relief collages. We will use a combination of ready made materials as well as hand drawn and cut unique designs. Students will then place their collage beneath a print sheet and run it over an inked base in the press. This results in a tone on tone painterly image with various depths of pressure printing lighter or darker. The poster can then be overprinted with text or a second or third design.
