This one-day workshop will be an introduction to all kinds of drawing strategies with new and old drawing tools applied to monotype plates. We will be working with linear marks directly applied to plastic plates released with viscosity over-rolls.

We will experiment with Akua Ink applicators, both needles and marking pens. When added to the monotype process, they make a hand drawn mark that adds clarity and specificity to painterly prints. This will be one fairly fast paced day to employ quick mark making and sketching to capture the moment on your plates.

This workshop is open to beginners with no printmaking experience as well as experienced printmakers. It can also be used as an introduction or a re-fresher course for those familiar with monotype printmaking with Akua Inks.
