"Course was excellent value for money and I really enjoyed my experience. I have no experience of printmaking and found it very informative. I would like to book more of the same. Thank you"
Jackie 1-1 Drypoint and Monoprinting printmaking workshop Feb 16
Monoprinting printmaking produces spontaneous one-off prints with quick, exciting results. The course will include two different monoprinting techniques. One technique involves drawing on the back of paper which has been placed directly onto a smooth inked surface, giving the image a beautiful quality to the line. The second technique starts with a plate that is cut to size to fit the bed of the etching press that is then inked up in various ways using different colours, textured material and then is hand pulled through the etching press using printmaking paper. The results can be very exciting.
1. A short introduction to monoprinting printmaking, showing the two different course options. Both options are available to try during the day.
2. Produce monoprints from still life supplied.
3. Create monoprints from your own drawings and designs.
4. Use an etching press to create original monoprints using stencils and different material provided.
All materials are included in the course, including ink and paper.
Please bring found images or drawings to work from.
