Collagraph is a basic method of printmaking using collage materials such as fabric, strings and gesso to create a plate without the use of acid or any solvents and print from a variety of textures. It could be treated as relief or intaglio plate. In the regular printing of mediums with depth like relief and intaglio, plates are inked up and pressed against a paper surface to leave an imprint. In contrast, Embossing and Debossing involve printing without ink, using the plate and press to create a physical impression on paper. Both processes are similar techniques that create a different result. Embossing produces a raised impression onto paper (or other surface) while Debossing does the opposite, causing a depressed impression in the paper. In this class, we will construct collagraph plates and print with/without ink
