In this weeklong workshop, participants will spend the first 2 days creating various collograph matrices including silk aquatint, paper collograph, carborundum aquatint and drypoint, with demos and guidance from the instructor. We will work with either 8 x 12 or 12 x 12 sizes to keep registration simple. These finished plates will then be printed in oil-based ink colors with the addition of watercolor elements and stencils. 

These techniques work well with many varied artistic styles, including both realism and abstract images. Some artists prefer to create plates that all work well together in various combinations, while others may prefer to focus on one or two of the techniques and create a complete image which can be editioned.

Participants should bring sketches and ideas with them to class, as well as images of other prints or paintings. It is also encouraged to bring any flat materials to use in your collograph plate building, such as lace, textured fabrics or papers, tree bark, sandpaper, or 2 ply mat board.

In order to reserve your space in the workshop, we require a $150 deposit. Registration is on a first-come first-served basis, and you can read about our refund and cancellation policies here.

Sue Oehme

Susan Hover Oehme received her BFA in printmaking and painting from the University of Michigan, School of Art in Ann Arbor, and continued her print study at NYU with Krishna Reddy. She has been a life-long artist and won several grants early in her career, which enabled her to purchase her first press. Four presses later, and many years in between, she now owns and is the Master Printer of Oehme Graphics in Steamboat Springs.  Before launching OG in 2010, she was the Director/ Master Printer at Riverhouse Editions from 1996 to 2009.  Prior to her move to Colorado, she lived and worked in New York City and printed at Tyler Graphics with such artists as Frank Stella, Helen Frankenthaler, and Joan Mitchell, and also free-lanced in many smaller print studios based in the city.

Ms. Oehme has taught numerous print workshops at institutions across the country including University of Denver, Boston University, Scripps College, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Women’s Studio Workshop, Brandeis University, and Northwestern University.  She has lectured at the Minneapolis Institute of Art on the legacy of Tyler Graphics, and at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center and the Steamboat Art Museum. She is past-president of the Steamboat Springs Arts Council, now known as Steamboat Creates, and sat on the Board of Directors for 5 years.

Her own work is currently represented at SPACE Gallery in Denver and at Jim Kempner Fine Art in New York City. A site-specific installation at the Arvada Center won a curator’s award in 2020, and her works are in numerous private and corporate collections across the country.
