Class Description

Have fun with florals and combine 2 different methods of monotype printmaking with plant transfers and a splash of colour. Monotype printmaking is an immediate method which involves inking up a plate of Perspex to produce one off prints.

In this workshop we will be using oil based coloured inks, speciality papers, plants and a small printing press to create 3 or 4 finished prints, each one unique.

Play with form, texture, colour and line to build up a multilayered print. Learn mark making techniques, how to print in stages and tips on  enhancing your work by  hand tinting. Work from your imagination or from reference sources provided.
