Next Level Monoprints

Saturday, March 2, 2024 @ 10:00 am - Sunday, March 3, 2024 @ 4:00 pm





This 2 day workshop dives deep into the world of monoprinting, a form of printmaking which yields unique prints (not an identical edition), hence the name “mono.”


Using monoprinting you’ll gain skills in:

  • Complex and effective colour combinations
  • Mark making and textures using both found objects and drawn lines
  • Layering of imagery including ghost printing and masking
  • Positive and negative stencil imagery
  • Multi plate images
  • Offset images
  • Working outside ‘the frame’
  • Registration and composition
  • Pattern, texture and repetition

To create our prints, we will be working with ‘Arthur’ the large etching press.  We will be focussing on making and using stencils in additional to using found objects, layering with trace monotypes and reductive mark-making.

We’ll make our stencils in different ways with techniques such as burning and tearing to create random edges.  Our stencil materials include paper, light card, or plastics such as acetate, yupo, and old x-rays.


Students will be asked to bring:

  • Apron and nametag
  • Lunch and Drinks
  • Objects to print with – need to be flat and thin (1mm maximum).  For example, leaves (press in phone book), feathers, lace, mesh, not metal
  • Imagery for stencils
  • Old x-rays for stencils (if available)
  • Visual diary/notebook and basic drawing kit

All other materials are supplied include artist quality printmaking inks and papers.


This workshop will wake up your art practice and even challenge you a bit.  You’ll be rewarded with an immersive printmaking experience full of unexpected and serendipitous images which could take you in a whole new direction.


Note:  Prior experience with monoprinting or attendance at one of our Creative & Colourful Monoprinting workshops is preferred but not essential.
