Monoprints combine the spontaneity of printed paints and fabric, creating a surface that is unlike any other. It is the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques. No two prints are alike.
In this 4-hour workshop, students will learn to use water-based paint on Gelli Plates or other surfaces (if you don’t have a Gelli Plate), utilizing various techniques: masking, multiple drop printing, colour mixing, etc. Students will play around with textures and random materials to create several pieces that can serve as underpaintings for future work or stand alone as a body of work.
Beware! It is fun … and very addictive.
The fee for this 4-hour workshop includes a 30 page booklet with instructions.
