A Monoprint is a printmaking technique where the image can only be made once because it has been treated in a unique way through inking or wiping. You will use found textured objects and materials including textured papers, leaves, feathers and fabrics to create original multi-coloured and layered A4 sized images. You will be able to experiment with ghost or shadow prints, masking, reduction prints, counter proofs and layered prints. Work with translucent and opaque inks, using presses and hand printing methods. By the end of the day you will have a selection of unique prints to take home.
