This workshop will introduce this exciting and versatile medium. The monoprint is created by painting directly onto a plate and hand burnishing. This is a unique method of working in multiple images, incorporating the immediacy of painting with printmaking methods. By repeating and reworking personal imagery and symbols, a rich rapport develops between the artist and the print. This unique workshop will focus on innovative techniques to enable printing without using a press. Class time will be spent exploring transfer, embossing, stamping, rubbing, and texture. No prior experience necessary.
