Sue Brown`s collograph workshop.

A fantastic workshop,Sue is a great teacher with a good sense of fun and she helped us all make and print collographs in just 2 hours, Sue is the one in the middle The mighty press complete with felt blanket

My daughter hard at work cutting her mount board,

After we had inked the collograph we had to remove the waste ink with old yellow pages.

One of the group looking very pleased with her print.

The next two pictures are Sue`s collographs.

And then we come to our efforts.

My daughter did this crow by a castle,well done Amy.

I went home full of enthusiasm and having found a new yellow pages on the doorstop took this as an omen to have another go using my mangle.

I was pleased with the results and will do some more after the Easter visitors,Sue Brown does workshops at Cirencester and at Andoversford if anyone interested is near enough email her at

You have a mangle? Oh, envy, envy.
Have tried various types of printing but not collagraph (for some reason they don't teach in on the Leeds College of Art printing course I'm doing. Must try it for myself. The results look really really good.
