With its layers of paperboard, polyethylene, aluminium foil, Tetra Pak offers not only an immediacy which other collagraph materials lack, but also a satisfying tactility when cutting, scoring, peeling and printing with this distinctive material.

During this advanced two-day Tetra Pak collagraph print workshop, the course tutor, Stephen Fowler, will facilitate the exploration of multi tetra pak plate prints which explore colour overlay, and the combination of intaglio and relief collagraph print processes.

Who is it for?

This course is ideally suited to for artists, educators, printmakers, and illustrators who have some experience in collagraph printmaking, or have attended one of Stephen's previous Tetra Pak printmaking course before.
