Monotype is a deceptively simple technique that gives spectacular results. It has ancient origins, but is still popular with contemporary artists, such as well-known South Australian artist, Rita Hall.

Julia will take you through the basic process of monoprinting, with the aid of examples from the past, as well as the present.

Monoprinting can exist as works of art on their own or they can be used as a starting point for pastels, oils and watercolours. The inks used in this process are water-based inks that can be cleaned up with soapy water. Bring ideas, drawings and/or photographs, protective clothing and lunch. All printing materials will be supplied.
