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 artist and printmaker, Peter McLean and will focus on creating black and white monotype prints using oil based inks to create rich tonal variation. Peter will show you how to create images using a variety of mark making techniques - including the maniere noire method (wiping back ink to reveal light areas), and the drawing transfer method. You will then learn how to operate the Megalo presses to run your plates through and create moody, tonally rich prints.
No previous printmaking experience required. All materials provided.
