Monotype prints are entirely unique and created through a process of oily inks being pressed and transferred from a flat surface onto paper.
This particular process is very favourable to those who prefer a more painterly effect to their prints, as gestural and textural marks can be achieved through the use of a wide variety of tools which can either remove or apply the ink to your plate. Through these tools, you will explore the boundaries of mark making with Monotypes.
Monotype / Monoprinting is a very flexible and liberating process and is not only a great introduction to Printmaking but can also be applied to other relief and intaglio techniques, to add texture, depth and tone.
Whether you are a complete beginner to printmaking, a Lino cutter or even an Etcher, this course will bring a new dynamic to your skill set.
