Experimental Methods in Monotype Workshop with Stephen MacFarlane

2-day Workshop, January 17-18th

Members: $156.00 (2 sessions)

Non-members: $170.00 (2 sessions)

Monotype is a very flexible form of printmaking that combines the immediacy of gesture and drawing with the expressive qualities of painting. In this two day monotype workshop we will experiment with ways to use ink, brushes, brayers and other materials to get some more of these expressive qualities in the prints we make.  Day One will focus on creating base layer compositions on the press and seeing how we can push ink around. Day Two will afford the opportunity to use some of these base layers to further experiment. The goal of the workshop is to expand the palette of options for creating beautiful images with the press.  

All levels of experience are welcome.

Note: We will have a limited number of brayers, so if you have a large brayer, please be sure and bring it.  Also, please bring your own paper, if you have it, or you can purchase it at the event.  There will be a supply fee of $3.50 per sheet of Reves paper.

His work on paper utilizes a printing press, ink and drawing to create one of a kind art pieces that link the delicate roles line and color play together in evoking an emotion with a figure as subject.
