All Level Monotype Printmaking Workshop MAY 5 – MAY 7
During this workshop, we will explore using monotype methods to approach printing a plate with repeatable elements. Teaching will highlight how to make and print a drypoint plate with time to practice intaglio wiping skills and learn how to add a color layer to create unique monoprints. Each day of the workshop will begin with a demonstration of a printmaking technique, followed by individual attention and supported practice time with plenty of time for working with the materials. We will begin by loosening up by making transfer drawings to use as guides for making drypoint plates. Petg plastic will be the substrate used to create drypoint marks and monotypes, which is a flexible, transparent plastic sheet. Get to know the fundamentals of ink, paper and press use, along with the tools of the studio, the unique qualities of Akua Water-based Inks, and innovative monotype and drypoint methods.
