Chine collé (to glue thin paper) is a technique where an image is transferred to a lightweight paper, which is then glued to a heavier backing paper during printing. This allows artists to print on delicate papers, such as Japanese Washi, which pull finer details off the plate. Chine collé can also be used to create a background colour in an image or to introduce intricately cut paper to etchings, lithographs, or relief prints. 

This workshop, which includes tips from Jillian Ross Production Studio, aims to simplify chine collé. Participants will gain an understanding of how to glue thin paper onto a heavier backing paper, how to colour these papers in different ways and how to use cutout shapes for extra fine details whilst maintaining exact registration. Using a dry glue method instead of wet, you will learn techniques that will give you more control whilst editioning that are easy to repeat. This workshop will showcase intaglio printing but these methods can be incorporated into all types of printmaking techniques.  

During the workshop, participants will be surrounded by recently completed prints from the exhibition Live Editions. These prints have incorporated chine collé into their makeup, allowing workshop participants to see first-hand how these techniques are incorporated into finished artworks.
