Monoprinting offers a way to create unique imagery using printmaking equipment and inks. The class offers exploration in several alternative methods: working into an inked plate, chine-colle, transfer and stencil printing. “Play” becomes an important element in exploring these techniques and we will allow it to influence the course. Participants will have an opportunity to explore their own ideas but creative prompts will also stretch their artistic approach. Spontaneity and invention are welcomed.
We have a 21 inch Little John press and most of the supplies will be included in the course. Participants will need to pay for the paper they use. We will also explore many methods which do not require a press. We will be using solvent free inks.
“Monoprinting is freeing and exciting because it combines the skills of drawing, the looseness of painting and the mystery of seeing the print emerge from the press in a new form.”
