The word collagraphy is derived from the Greek words koll or kolla, which means glue, and graph, which means drawing. Collagraphy is a versatile printing process in which collage materials are glued to the board. It is then inked up and put through a press. Different textures hold varying amounts of ink and print different tones. Anything with a low-relief texture can be stuck down and used: wallpaper, leaves, fabrics, tapes and threads etc This technique will help explore different mediums and learn how they behave when ink is applied.
