Printing without a press is a very accessible technique and the results are often very striking. In this 4 hour workshop we’ll be making monotypes — a printmaking method which also combines drawing and painting, and embraces a great degree of unpredictability and accident.The Kreis und Stern team — illustrators Irina Troitskaya and Susannah Garden — will demonstrate varied methods for making a variety of monotype prints. You will learn about:
- trace monotypes: a simple technique to create printed paintings that focus on line rather than tone
- painterly monotypes: working with tone, brushwork, and adding and removing ink on the plate to obtain special effects in your prints.
- stencils: how to employ them and re-work “failed” prints with repeated printing passes
Participants will take away a small collection of unique A5 monotype prints.
