Course Details
Learn how to create painterly monoprints using stencils and colour during this taster session.

 

What will you learn?

Monoprinting is a method of printmaking that embodies experimentation, spontaneity and impulsive use of mark making. The characteristic of this method is that no two prints are alike; although images can be similar, multiple, identical editions are not possible.

At Green Door, we advocate monoprinting for anyone who is currently ‘stuck’, feels ineffective or sidelined when it comes to their work. This process is also perfect for those who have never tried printmaking and would like to dive straight into using inks, tools and presses, combined with beautiful cotton-rag papers to create a series of unique and individual prints. Prints produced using this process are always fascinating and, more often than not, inspiring. They can be both beautiful stand-alone prints, as well as a starting point from which to explore and investigate other printmaking techniques.

Students will learn how to create monoprints using the various methods. Please note our concessionary and student discounts do not apply for taster sessions.

Suitable for ages 13+.

* Children younger than 18 may be accompanied by a parent (at no extra cost). Please note these classes are not suitable for children younger than 13 years old due to the printmaking machinery/tools involved.

If you are booking for a young printmaker and would like to accompany them during the session, please note your name in the Order Notes when checking out.
