Why this course?

Printmaking black and white cityscape

Monoprinting is a painterly printmaking technique which involves rolling or painting ink on a printing plate. On this one-day workshop we learn to create expressive abstract images and painterly narrative images. It is a fast, fun and spontaneous process to create prints which can be a stand-alone art work or combine with other techniques to create a more complex result. For example: the next printmaking workshop Paper Lithograph.

This workshop is suitable for beginners or students with some printmaking experience.

We recommend students enroll on the Paper Lithographic workshop - the combination for two techniques will enhance your work to create a more complex result. You may also want to try out evening classes. Student can use the work as part of a portfolio for applying to further education courses.

Students should bring: reference material to work from or a sketchbook to work on. Bring a pencil, glue stick, scissors, masking tape and a craft knife. Mono plate, ink and printmaking papers are provided, but you can bring interesting texture paper, or old book pages to print onto.
