In this series of three sessions on monoprint we will cover:
- Direct mono print: In the first of the three sessions, led by Natalie Eldred, we will explore making prints by working directly onto the plate, printing both by hand and using the press, using colour and reduction methods.
- Drawing with mono print: In the next session, run by Jeannie MacCarthy, we will use the inked plate to draw from life, creating linear and tonal one-off works.
- Printing with the press: And in the final session, led by Natalie Eldred, focusing on mono printing techniques, we will play with found objects, natural materials and the press, to create unique abstract pieces – no drawing required!
Attend all three sessions or just the sessions that take your fancy. All sessions are light hearted, informal and fun with the emphasis on creative exploration and play. Good for beginners and also if you are contemplating joining Wivenhoe Printworks, as sessions 1 & 3 will introduce you to both the space and the press.
