Katherine Jones- Collagraph Masterclass
This weekend Spike Print Studio hosted a fantastic workshop led by Katherine Jones.
Katherine works in painting, installation, book arts and printmaking. Her prints are a beautiful mix of collagraph, intaglio, aquatint and block print with translucent gradations of colour that convey atmosphere and light. Recently awarded multiple printmaking prizes in the UK, including the Pushing Print and Northern Print prizes, in 2009 and a Birgit Skiold Memorial Trust prize in 2010, her work becoming recognised for its strong iconography, its depiction of light its sense of scale, and its sheer technical brilliance.
During the workshop we got to see how Katherine creates her dramatic imagery with simple collagraph and block-print plates. The results inspired everyone.
