What will you learn?

Each day will cover a different process;

The freedom of Monoprint techniques allow a very versatile approach to imagery. The appeal of the monotype lies in the unique textures that create a quality of light very differently from a painting on paper or a print, and the beauty of this media is also in its spontaneity and its combination of printmaking, painting and drawing methods.

Lino is a beautifully malleable printing surface. It is a very graphic method of producing an image. Designs can be cut, melted, or carved to create a bold and experimental design.

Drypoint on Copper
Drypoint is a printmaking technique that achieves a line-based image, using sharp tools to scratch into the surface of a copper plate. The style of this method lends itself well to loose drawing and expressive mark making.

Stencil Screen Printing
There are many different ways to create a stencil for Screen Printing, as it is the underlying principle to the whole process. A traditional method is to create the stencil out of a non-porous material by hand (much like a papercut) and then applying this to the mesh of the screen and producing multiple prints onto paper or fabric.
