Basic Printmaking Processes
This one-day workshop will focus on the basic printmaking techniques of mono printing and block printing. Students will not only develop their skills using these materials, but will have the chance to experiment with a variety of artistic processes.
Students will be introduced to mono printing - one of the simplest printing methods, and once everything is set up, one of the quickest. You will be shown how to create mono-prints using the methods of drawing and impression on different surfaces, and really explore textures and different ways of mark making.
This technique is an extremely easy and quick way to create repeated patterns either on paper or textiles. Different ways of making blocks/ stamps to print will be shown and students will be given ample opportunity to experiment by printing onto different surfaces and textures.
