Colorful Chine Collé

3–session course
Taught by Maureen George

Schedule

Sundays, December 4, 11 and 18
10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Course description

Learn to create colorful prints with Chine Collé, the printmaking technique of mounting thin papers and fabrics to a heavier support stock while printing an image in one pass. Materials used can be Japanese rice papers, stamped, painted or patterned papers or anything else such as lightweight silk. We will experiment in monotype using powdered wheat paste to adhere the colorful materials to a heavier stock such as Rives BFK.

Topics covered in class:  Create colorful prints with one pass through the press; prepare and use papers for Chine Collé, dampen them in a wet pack and apply them to the plate; create monotype images and place Chine Collé papers on plate; prepare the carrier paper and print on the press.

Week 1:  Share some print examples that use Chine Collé; set up a wet pack for dampening Chine Collé materials; short demo of creating a monotype, placing papers on the plate, and printing; participants prepare their plates and print them; clean up

Week 2:  Print patterns and designs on washi paper or other thin paper to make our own Chine Collé papers

Week 3:  Work on prints—option to bring a prepared matrix or continue with monotype

Level of study: Intermediate

Helpful skills: Since we are creating monotypes, familiarity of the monotype process or ability to draw, paint, or design with shapes would be helpful.
