During this monoprinting course students will develop the skills needed to experiment with and print monotype images independently at home. This medium is known for its painterly qualities and is great for experimental mark making using traditional tools or found objects. Class packs are included in the workshop and include all the inks and materials needed to learn the basics of hand-printed monoprinting without a press. Participants are encouraged to keep the tools and any leftover materials for future printerly pursuits.

This workshop is divided into 4 sessions, each lasting 3 hours, with live instructional demonstrations that will take place over zoom. Our instructor will be available during class times for image development and technical troubleshooting, and students will have opportunities to share their work with other participants throughout the course.
