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.
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.
