Contemporary Monoprinting Workshop
1 day course with Gillian Garnica
Saturday 5 December, 2020
10am – 4pm
Monotyping is an exciting and fast technique that allows artists to bring the freedom and immediacy of painting and drawing into their printed works and add experimental flourishes and fluidity. In this one-day workshop, we will explore various forms of monotyping; experimenting with painting, drawing and reduction techniques. Students will use handmade mark making tools and print onto Japanese papers to make moody, atmospheric artworks with luscious oil-based inks. As well as printing with an etching press, students will be shown hand printing methods, suitabl e for creating monotypes at home.
