Monotype Printmaking Workshop
Monotype printing is fun, easy and contagious!
During this workshop, you will have the opportunity to create at least 2 unique monotype print artworks to take home.
What you will learn:
You will be taught various techniques for mark making and achieving painterly monotype prints. You will experiment with paint, printing ink and various tools and everyday objects to produce your own monotype prints. You will learn how to take both a planned and spontaneous approach to this printing method. You will also learn how you can continue at home with minimal investment in materials. You will be taught ‘tabletop’ printing that can easily be done at home without the need for a printing press or other expensive materials.
