Join artist Tammy Ratcliff for a weekend workshop featuring monotype printmaking designed for both the beginner and the more experienced. A spontaneous and satisfying way to work, monotype offers quick results and a variety of techniques. Tammy will lead you in the use of an etching press, using premium papers and only the best inks, for inspired experimentation. Explore the many ways to create a one-of-a-kind painterly print; additive and subtractive methods of applying ink to the plate surface, the use of brayers, brushes and stencils, chine collé, texture transferring, multiple plate printing and registration.
WHAT TO BRING: apron, sketchbook, photos, pressed leaves, bits of lace, favourite pencils, ruler and a lunch for break.
