Description

Monoprints combine the spontaneity of printed paints and fabric, creating a surface unlike any other. It is the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques. No two prints are alike.

In this 6-hour workshop, students will learn to use water-based paint on a gelatin plate (Gelli plate).  This workshop will cover the basics, working in layers,  working with bands of colour that create abstract backgrounds, masking, multiple drop printing, colour mixing, etc.  We will be working on fabric, but I will also use tissue paper, deli paper, and regular paper to create collage fodder.

Beware! It is fun … and very addictive.

The fee for this 6-hour workshop includes a booklet with instructions.
