Here are some results from my last day with Elise and Jane at Atelier Meridian. The printing is not too good, I’m afraid. I have a lot of trouble making the Akua colours behave, but it must be me – Angela had some brilliant results.
And here's a photo of Jane with the huge roller that Barbara found for her.
We have arrived in Portland, Oregon, to take a three day Encaustic Collagraph workshop with Elise Wagner. We are staying with Barbara Mason. Barbara is a printmaker of many years standing. I met her more than a decade ago, when I taught a workshop for her here in Portland.
Elise works together with Jane Pagliarulo, who, together with Barbara, founded a Print Studio called Atelier Meridian.
Here are some shots of Elise’s Studio. Brittany, Jane’s intern, is in the second shot. All the work on the walls is by Elise Wagner.
And here are some of the plates I made. Tomorrow we spend the day printing at the Atelier, and I will see what I can do with my plates. The scraper above the plates is used to carve the wax down.
We will be using Akua Inks.
