Often referred to as painterly printmaking, monotype is a type of print made by drawing or painting with ink on a smooth surface. The image is then transferred to paper using a press. Unlike other printmaking techniques the resulting image is a 'one off' that cannot be repeated.
This workshop will be led by award-winning artist, Leah Bullen and will focus on creating monotype prints with watercolour and other non-toxic water-based mediums. Leah will show you how to build up an image using a variety of mark making techniques, run your plate through the press, and create colourful, painterly prints.
No previous printmaking experience required. Students are required to bring a selection of paintbrushes in varying sizes. All other materials provided.
