Monotype Printmaking

This ses­sion will explore using the acrylic sur­face and print­ing inks to form and trans­fer images onto a sur­face via the print­ing press.

Monotype is printmaking made by drawing or painting on a smooth, non-absorbent surface. The surface, or matrix, was historically a copper etching plate, but can vary from zinc or acrylic sheets. The image is then transferred onto a paper by pressing the two together, using a printing-press or rubbing with the back of a wooden spoon or fingers that allow pressure to be controlled selectively. Monotypes can also be created by inking an entire surface and then removing ink to create a subtractive image.

This session will explore using the acrylic surface and printing inks to form and transfer images onto a surface via the printing press. This form of printmaking will enable you to create images using a range of marks, layers of colour and allow you to experiment with various drawing and painting skills, including subtractive mono-printing.

All you need to bring with you is an image to work from and your imagination. All other materials and tools will be supplied by the tutor.
