Have you ever wanted to make a monotype print? Monotype prints are one-of-a-kind prints, all unique! Imagine painting on a sheet of plastic, placing paper over it, then running it through my printing press. Voila, the image comes out on the paper in reverse to how you painted it. Come have fun and play with water-based AKUA inks, brushes, stencils, and different papers to create your one-of-a-kind prints using my printing press. No experience necessary with the printing process; three students maximum per workshop means personal and attentive attention from the teacher.
I learned monotype printmaking from the great Robert Blackburn in NYC, and worked with Mike Mazur in Cambridge, MA for years. I guarantee you will have a blast learning and playing with inks!
We will begin with introductions with students sharing goals for the class, following up with looking at examples of monotype prints, then finish the morning with a discussion regarding the printing process and technique on the press. We'll take a short break, then launch into printing in the afternoon until 2.30 pm. Clean up with vegetable oil / soap and water is simple, because we use AKUA inks, which are totally water-soluable!
The next workshop is Saturday, April 27...$145 includes all materials. We will work on 8" x 12" sheets of plexi-glass which will remain in the studio. You may also bring your own paper if you like. This workshop takes place at One Cottage St., #415, Easthampton, MA, The Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts.
