Collograph (Textural) Print Workshop


You are invited to learn to make collographic prints printmaker and glass artist Mimi Boston.



This is a fun and easy way to try your hand at printmaking and familiarize yourself with the basics. No specific tools or complicated techniques are required. A huge variety of one-of-a-kind images can be made in a short time with an equally huge variety of possibilities for personal expression.

The collographic method can be used to create complete images or can be incorporated into other kinds of prints and mixed media work. 

Collographs are created by printing textures from found objects and from nature. Plates can be made to print from but the objects can be printed without a plate. This class is open to learners of any level from absolute beginner and up.

Students only need to bring paper to print on. All other materials will be provided. However, students will want to collect materials with interesting textures that can be inked and printed. These need to be flat materials such as cloth, textured papers, etc.

 Tuition is $40.00 and is limited to six participants.

The workshop is on Wednesday June 20th from 5:30 PM until 9:00 PM.

There are only 6 seats available. Click on the following link to reserve your place.
