Mono-Printing Workshop

10:30am — 3:30pm


get creative with this mono-printing workshop

Learn how leaves like oak, maple, sycamore, ferns and small berries can successfully, under certain conditions, be flattened and monoprinted onto recycled papers with the use of pressing, rolling and a bit of creative energy. Subtle or well-defined prints can be achieved by providing beautiful tones and delicate textural marks. You will take home samples of papers and 1-2 finished A4 mono-prints.

This a full day course in order to fit in all of the basic skills required to achieve good results for yourselves at home. We look at preparing papers, collecting and storing the best botanics for this process, the role of flattening, layout and design options, successful laying out of the foraged botanics, the inking process, and aftercare of your projects.

Whether you want a relaxing creative day or you want to learn the basic techniques to try out at home - this one-day workshop will help you to achieve successful and reliable results.

By the end of the day you will have:

  • Learnt about materials and equipment required for monoprinting
  • Studied a range of examples for inspiration and understanding
  • Observed a number of demonstrations for inspiration and understanding
  • Created a set of printed images to take home with you
