This is a two-day guided exploration of combining and creating relief and monotype plates. We will carve and incise a plastic substrate, first working small and spontaneously with mix and match sizes that can be rolled for relief printing and altered with monotype inking techniques. This is a playful method of introducing carved and incised lines and forms into the painterly print, creating a rich vocabulary of mark making.

With a carved plate and a monotype plate layered together with stencils, the possibilities are endless. Students will bring home several small test plates and one or two larger plates to continue the exploration of inking and combining plates after the workshop.

This workshop is open to both the beginning and the experienced printmaker.
