Chine-colle Workshop
Instructor: Eveline Kolijn
Fee: $50 Maximum: 6
June 19, 2-4PM

Chine-colle is a method of bonding lightweight, natural paper on a print, through the use of a printing press. It is a way to add color and texture without having to prepare an additional plate to print.

- I shall demonstrate two different glue methods of Chine-Colle: One using traditional Japanese ricepaste and the other using dry, Polifix wall-paperglue-powder.

- I shall discuss the different uses of the Chine-colle technique, for different effects and demonstrate printing with these techniques (cut-out sections, whole paper and printed with another image).

- The participants should bring etched plates with which they want to experiment, lightweight papers in different tints and textures, and normal printing paper. They can also bring lightweight paper with printed texture on it.

Gallery Hours:
