Course structure

During the afternoon there will be the opportunity to try several monotype printmaking techniques to make exciting and unique prints.  We will be exploring manipulating ink on the surface of a plate using brushes and rollers and printing the plate on damp paper using a press. 

The workshop will also cover experimenting with printing several layers of colour and using cut or torn paper stencils.

Participants will be working on A5 plates and printing on A4 paper and will be using water based ink.
