Collagraph Workshop with Katherine Jones


Saturday 18 June 2022


Collagraph is a method of printmaking which utilises texture on the plate’s surface to hold the ink. This method has been used widely by artists over the years using a wide range of materials and approaches. The printing matrix can be constructed using humble materials and requires very little studio equipment other than a press.
In this workshop Katherine Jones will introduce a particular take on the technique which can be produced relatively quickly and used to generate bold imagery with a wide range of tone and texture.
Katherine Jones is a fine art printmaker and painter living and working in Brixton South London. She combines traditional forms of intaglio and relief print namely etching, collagraph and block-print to produce her distinctive images.

The tension between safety and danger, security and vulnerability, are a central focus of Katherine’s work. Recently she has turned her sights on the archetypal playground as a vehicle for describing these contrasting themes, manipulating impressions of those familiar objects specifically made for the process of childhood play and experiment. Like the house structures predominant in earlier work these structures may not be what they seem being as fallible, and unreliable as they are dependable and secure.

Her work is held in public collections worldwide including the V&A prints and drawings collection, The V&A National Art library, the House of Lords, Yale University Library, US.
