collagraphy

Not a lot of textile action this week.  Something 
different today though, a workshop on collagraphy.  
Fascinating, and the process can be used on textiles.

Sample boards made to get some idea of the process.
A lot of "backward" brain work, negative/positive, 
texture and tone etc. Cutting into mount boards, 
lots of gluing,  paper, string, leaves, oatmeal. Sealing
with shellac.  All very satisfyingly messy!


Next week, learning how to ink up boards and printing.

Three small boards ready to go.
