11 May – 15 June 2022

$375 per person

Includes all materials.

Often referred to as ‘painterly’ printmaking, monotypes are made by drawing or painting ink on a smooth surface before the image is then transferred to paper in a press. Unlike most other printmaking processes, monotypes are a ‘one-off’ that cannot be repeated. Best known for rich tones and spontaneous mark-making, monotype is an easy to explore medium requiring no previous printmaking experience.
