I have been working on this collagraph print for the past week or two, learning the process as much as anything. CATO Press in east Bristol can handle quite large print plates, this one is about 55cm in diameter and is available to buy.
I think the real thing looks a bit better than this photo. Now working on another two or three collagraphs but not so big – the cost of paper can be prohibitive. This one is printed on ‘bread and butter’ paper (250 gsm) which is probably not really heavy enough for collagraph. I had some waste having printed with the paper too damp and had peeling as a result.
We had a community print evening recently, lots of people lino-cutting, very jolly. These are regular events at CATO Press, check us out and drop by if you are in the area, all welcome.
