Leader: Kim Wenger Hall

“Frottage” is a method of creating pattern and texture within a drawing using a rubbing technique, to create a “dry” print. Later, we’ll make a series of “collagraphs,” made from a printing block we craft from the textured materials used in the frottage.

What to bring:
• Large medium weight drawing paper (thin enough that you will be able to feel for texture beneath it) (at least 11″ x 17″)
• Scotch tape, masking tape
• Items that have texture (you will be using these to create your rubbing) Get creative.
Examples: leaves, string, brick, sandpaper, pasta, textured cloth, coins, mesh bags, tinfoil, cardboard
• Pencil, eraser, and sketch paper
• To create the rubbing: crayons, colored pencils, oil pastels, etc.
• Good quality scissors and other cutting implements as desired
• Glue, and other adhesives
• Paint, paint brushes, etc.
