Monoprinting is a type of printmaking that involves versatile imagery that can only be produced once. Unlike most printmaking forms, which allow for multiple originals, monoprinting allows for freedom and diversity in mark-making to make a single impression.
This workshop will encourage participants to explore this freedom in mark-making to create unique works on paper. The workshop will cover both positive and negative forms of image-making, as well as ways to create texture using found objects. Trace monotype and watercolour monoprinting will also be explored.
Participants are encouraged to supply their own notebook/visual diary, paper (cartridge and heavy rag paper), and sketches/preliminary imagery. These items will be available for purchase on the day from the ArtWorld Studio Gallery Shop.
In compliance with Workshop Health & Safety regulations, all participants must bring their own aprons and wear closed-in shoes.
Tea and coffee will be provided.
