Saturday 9th April 10am-4pm
An expressive, fun, creative workshop!
Learn how to make single (monotype) prints with the minimum of materials. Perfect for those who like to experiment and don't mind getting a bit inky!
This process blurs the lines between painting and printmaking and is a very expressive way of making work. Your work can be representational or abstract - it's a very versatile process.
Absolutely no experience necessary.
Linking in with our sustainable living focus, this workshop will use cotton rag paper, linseed oil inks and cleaning up with vegetable oil. The printing plates are recycled and are reusable too.
Please note that the cost of this workshop also includes a delicious light lunch and refreshments. Our team will be in touch with you nearer the time with more information about the day and menu options.
Please note that there there is an additional materials cost of £7 payable on the day to the tutor.
