2 Day

Collagraph Workshop
with Basil Hall

Over two days Basil Hall will introduce techniques for creating beautiful prints using collagraph techniques. Collagraphs are inexpensive to produce and have the capacity to pick up very slight shifts in a printing plate’s material texture, imbuing a print with a range of textures and tones. Using laminated card and a variety of additive and subtractive processes, this two day workshop will explore the tactile landscape of a collagraph plate and the many ways that printing processes and a painterly approach to colour can be used to explore its nuances. Everyday materials and a subtle build up and removal of material will be explored in this workshop.


There are two workshop options available:

Thursday/Friday March 24 & 25  


Saturday/Sunday March 26 & 27.



Basil Hall

Basil Hall has been working as a printer for other artists since his first collaborations with glass artist, Klaus Moje, in 1983. He trained at the ANU, teaching for a number of years before returning to the national capital to study printmaking at the Canberra School of Art under Jorg Schmeisser.

From 1987-1995 he ran Studio One National Print Workshop in Canberra, an access and editioning facility. Here he and his team worked with scores of artists such as Schmeisser, Mandy Martin, Garry Shead, Rosalie Gascoigne, George Gittoes, Judy Watson and Raymond Arnold.

In 1995 he received a Churchill Fellowship to study at printmaking studios in Europe and USA.

From 1996 until 2001, he was Printmaking Lecturer at the Charles Darwin University, NT and Editioning Manager of Northern Editions. In 2002, he started Basil Hall Editions. He and his printers made editions with hundreds of artists from over 55 Art Centres in Central Australia, Arnhem Land, the Tiwi Islands and Kimberley area of Western Australia and travelled regularly to remote aboriginal communities and other locations in Australia to instigate and collaborate on printmaking projects.

Basil is now based in Canberra and continues to print editions of etchings, relief prints and silkscreen prints. He invites artists to join him in collaborations in his studio in leafy Ainslie and he runs workshops and summer schools around Australia and on Skopelos in Greece.
