About the workshop
This workshop is for people who would like to learn about some basic techniques for producing monotypes. You don’t need to be able to draw or paint as we can appropriate material from a range of sources to create something new. You just need to be willing to get a bit messy.
We will look at a number of techniques including traced printing, subtractive process, collograph and masking – the pace will be determined by participants.
Most of the equipment that you will need can generally be found around the house – a list will be sent out to participants.
This workshop is ideal for people who want to begin an interest in art, or who already have an art practice but would like to add printing to their range of skills.
Visit the British Museum for a beautiful example of a traced monotype by Paul Gaugin.
