Monoprinting Demo with Liz Wellby
Wednesday 7th June, 10.30 - 12.30
The process of monoprinting dates back to the 1600's and has been explored
by a number of artists, including Rembrandt, Edgar Degas and Pierre Bonnard.
There are several methods, including direct, indirect and painted methods. We will focus on the painted method, which has lovely spontaneity.
Liz will demonstrate how she explores this exciting process and then it will be over to you to create your own monoprint based upon images of your choice.
You will need to bring along the following:
. a range of images, i.e. drawings, photos etc, at approx' A5.
. a dinner sized pale plate or flat palette.
. a pencil case.
. an apron.
