This workshop is all about further developing your process beyond your first Collagraph & Cutouts, Embossing or Etching workshop.

You will have access to the same resources and tools as you did in your first workshop, including Pauline the etching press and Paulette small X-Cut craft press.

Continue to create and print from where you left off and/or create new work. Experiment and extend with the process, with me there to guide and tutor you through the weekend.

This is not about learning new processes – rather building on skills and knowledge previously covered.

Prior attendance at any of the above workshops (Collagraph, Embossing, Etching) is essential.

Workshops and Student’s work

Below are images from the Etching Extension weekend workshops run in 2023. This Intaglio Extension workshop will the first time is have been offered to Embossing and Collagraph and Cutout workshop attendees.

Learning Outcome

This is not about learning new processes – rather building on skills and knowledge previously covered.

If you attended the Etching workshop – print your original plates, make new plates, experiment with your plates (old and new) and experiment with different inking styles and options, including incorporating chine-collé to your prints.

If you attended the Embossing workshop – experiment with new ideas. Pre-prepare and bring elements to emboss with, and/or create new pieces over the weekend. Incorporate gold leaf and include some inked-up and printed cutout elements with your embossed papers (like in my Field Notes ‘Skys Dancers’ embossed and printed prints).

If you attended the Collagraph and Cutouts workshop – print your original plates, make new plates and experiement with new ideas. Add chine-collé to your prints, incorporate embossed elements and take your collagraph and cutout prints to a whole new level.

Regardless of the workshop you previously attended, I will be on hand the whole weekend to guide and tutor you through whatever you want to achieve over the weekend.


All necessary materials for this workshop are covered in your Materials Fee, including;

– all tools and resources needed to make your etching, embossing and collagraph plates
– inks and other studio materials and resources to print your plates
– printmaking papers, inks and associated sundry items
– tea and coffee, with a light morning and afternoon tea

Not Included

Everything you need for this workshop is included and provided.

What to Bring

IDEAS – This workshop is all about you and working with what you learned in your first workshop. Bring your own image ideas, and you can look through any of my resource library books for inspiration when you’re here.

PRINTING PLATES – ou are welcome to bring your own plates (etching, drypoint, linocut, collagraph, embossing) to work with over the weekend. If you have paper stencils that you would like to work with (and don’t mind getting inky), bring them along too.

LUNCH – You can pop into town to buy lunch, but it is a few minutes drive and parking can be difficult (Maleny is a popular weekend destination). Therefore I recommend you bring your lunch and maximise the time you have printing and learning in the studio.

Please also bring a studio apron and journal or notebook for taking notes during the workshop.


Participants are advised to wear closed in shoes, and suitable clothing or apron that you do not mind getting dirty or stained.

Gloves will be available for when working with any chemicals and ink. It is expected that you will follow safety procedures  and take care when working with chemicals.
