MONOPRINTING Saturday 10th June 10.30 - 4
at Ashmore Village Hall, Green Lane, Ashmore. Dorset. SP5 5AL
Ashmore Village Hall. Light and spacious. It is in an idyllic
location overlooking the cricket green with plenty of parking.
A monoprint is an artwork that is transferred from one surface to another to create a mirror image.
This form of printmaking is very spontaneous and expressive and allows for lots of experimentation using brushstrokes, marking the surface with fine lines and removing areas of paint with a rag. You will also learn the tracing method where you put a piece of paper over a base plate that has an even layer of ink on it and then draw on the paper. The pressure of the drawing tool transfers the ink to the underside of the paper and gives a beautiful quality of line.
You will spend the day learning the various techniques with time to experiment and produce several pieces of work.
The day runs from 10.30 - 4.
Teas and coffees available throughout the day. Bring a packed lunch. Maximum 8 people.
£80 including all materials

If booked together with the Linocutting Workshop on the following day you can combine the two workshops to create some beautiful monoprints that can be used as the base to print your linocut on top. This is a lovely way to combine both processes to produce a unique set of prints.
£140 for both workshops
