Traditionally, monotypes are printed from a smooth substrate, with no repeatable marks on the plate. In this series of classes, each day will begin with an introduction to a new substrate, and how to approach printing a plate with some repeatable elements. We will carve, incise, buildup surfaces, use wood grain and generally explore monotype methods of inking on surfaces that disrupt and enhance the chance for beauty and accident. Each day of the workshop begins with a demonstration of a printmaking technique, followed by supported practice time with the materials. Participants will be encouraged to experiment, and apply these processes to create individual print projects. Over the course of six weeks, participants will get to know the tools of the studio, the unique qualities of Akua Water-based Inks, and innovative monotype methods.
