Mono printing

Regular price $75.00

Learn the basics of the ancient medium of printmaking for the first time, or hone
your existing skills and knowledge. In this 2 hour workshop, the fundamentals of
monotype printmaking will be explored. Tide pool and ocean creatures, beach
vistas, flora, and fauna are among the many inspirations found in the natural
seascape of Cannon Beach. Utilizing the additive or “light-field” technique,
students will create several one-of-a-kind monoprints. You’ll be guided through a
painterly process of applying paint or ink directly to a printing plate, transferring
the painted image to a piece of paper, rubbing it, and then pulling the printed paper
from the plate to reveal the transferred image. Alternately, experimenting with
the subtractive, or “dark-field” technique, the plate is covered with a layer of ink
or paint, and the image is formed by manipulating and removing the ink or paint
using a variety of tools, including brushes, rags, or your fingers. Each plate
typically yields one monotype, but subsequent pulls (sometimes called ghost
impressions because of their relative faintness) can be made from the residual
mediums on the plate.
