Introduction to Monoprinting
Monoprinting is the most painterly method of printing and can be combined with collage, painting and other printmaking techniques.
Unlike most printmaking techniques which allow for multiple originals, monoprinting creates only one, unique image. The excellent thing about this technique is its spontaneity and its allowance for combinations of printmaking, painting and mark making, generating creativity for future ideas.
In this three hour workshop you will learn how to use water washable oil-based inks to create unique prints. Gestural and textural marks can be created using a wide variety of tools which can either remove or apply the ink to your plate. Printing using a small etching press and by hand. We will explore ways to create monoprints at home.
You will come away with a series of unique prints approximately A4 in size.
We will be working with water washable oil-based inks. Please wear old clothing such as an old shirt or an apron.
