My current workshop format includes the more advanced techniques including the multiple layers I use in my Flora series. You don't necessarily need extensive art experience - just imagination and willingness to experiment.
Learn about various materials, methods and processes, how to use equipment, create and ink the plates. Students will achieve surprising and unique monoprints by combining several techniques including drypoint, monotype, masking, off-set and ghost printing. Explore non-toxic printmaking methods using materials such as plexiglass, 100% cotton paper, stencil board and linseed oil-based inks to create beautiful layered images.
Four students maximum in this class. I've extended the time to four hours which allows students to create the plates and stencils used in the process and to pull multiple monoprints. Previous students have gone home with up to 20 prints. Price including all materials is $100.
My studio is on the Westside with street parking, students will go through the gate and into the studio which is handicapped accessible. My friendly 9-year-old yellow Lab, Izzy, will be on the premises (greeting, barking and lounging) and students are welcome to bring their own lunch or snacks to enjoy in the garden. Close-toed shoes are required and students should wear non-precious clothing as oil-based ink will mark fabrics. I will provide all paper, inks, plates, aprons and plastic gloves.
