Introduction to Monotype Printing Workshop

7:30pm - 9:30pm

This introductory workshop is an exploration of monotype printing incorporating some chine colle.

A monotype is a hand-pulled art print, created with pigment alone (usually printmaking ink) on a smooth plate (usually metal, acrylic or glass) that is pressed against paper to transfer the pigments from the plate to the paper.

The root word ‘mono” means one, because you get a single print. This printmaking method results in a single, printed, original art image.

We will start the session by having a go at monotype printing with oil pastels, before going on to experiment with a variety of ink techniques to create a series of prints.

Great for beginner and improvers, but suitable for all abilities - come and have a go!
