Encaustic Collagraph Printmaking with Elise Wagner

May 2, 2020 @ 10:00 am - May 3, 2020 @ 4:00 pm

This two-day semi-private workshop in my Portland studio covers the various steps of the Encaustic Collagraph technique that I pioneered, more from a painter’s point of view. You will learn some basic rudiments of encaustic and then we will dive in using various common tools of the medium. A comprehensive demonstration will cover applying the wax and use of various encaustic techniques that I married with collagraph as well as dry point etching, mark making, incising, embossing, and the use of heated tools. An in depth overview of Akua Inks and mediums as well as wiping techniques will also be covered.

10:00 AM – 4:00 PM each day.

You will first create the collagraph plates using my Wagner Encaustic Collagraph White on plexiglas. The next day, we begin applying ink, intaglio wiping and printing using Akua Intaglio Inks. The plates that you create in this workshop can also be saved and reused to come back and print from again and again.
