Monoprint and Drypoint Weekend

Rachel Cohen

Day 1: Monoprinting is a way of making one-off prints. You will learn two different techniques; direct method and subtraction method. You will work on sheets of glass or plastic, using rollers, brushes, pencils and pens. You will use black and coloured printing inks and a variety of different sorts of paper. The techniques are easy to do again in your own home or studio.

Day 2: Drypoint etching is a simple intaglio print technique in which you scratch your design onto a surface and then print it using a press. You will make designs on clear plastic and recycled cartons. You will use black and coloured inks and tissue paper collage.

Suitable for all levels including artists and complete beginners. No experience or drawing skills necessary.

All materials provided but students are encouraged to bring their own images to work from, such as drawings or photographs. There will also be images and objects to inspire you in the studio. Please wear old clothes as printing can be messy.
