Introduction to Monotype with Watercolour Workshop with Alexa Johnson, Feb 7th 2024, 10am to 1pm
$75.00 + $10 material fee
An introduction to printmaking using a watercolour technique that is suitable for all levels.
Monotype printmaking is a painterly approach to printmaking that results in one unique print from each printmaking “plate” prepared. Watercolour is an expressive medium in which to experiment with this contemporary printmaking technique.
In this class students will create one-of-a-kind watercolour monotype prints using a unique process where only one impression is made. As well as explore the process of secondary 'ghost prints' – slightly faded impressions of the original one of a kind work.
Alexa will walk you through how to prep your surface (plate) and prepare your image as well as an introduction to the printmaking process and using a printmaking press.
Please bring your own watercolour paints, brushes and any water soluble mark making supplies you would like. All other materials are provided with a $10 fee.
Depending on your own image-making process, you may want to come with an idea sketched out, or bring along any references you would like to use to create your prints.
All classes and workshops are non-refundable. Cancellations made 7 days, or more in advance of the workshop or class date will receive 100% credit. 6 days before class, and no credit will be issued.
