Monoprinting Demo with Liz Wellby

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.

Artist Liz Wellby will be demonstrating the mono printing technique, known as the most painterly method among the printmaking techniques.  A monoprint is essentially a printed painting. The characteristic of this method is that no two prints are alike; although images can be similar, editioning is not possible.

Liz will first demonstrate then allow you to have a go too. 

Places are now limited so booking is essential

Wed 17 May 10.30-12.30 at Tansley village Hall DE4 5FH

Pricing is sometimes harder than the making bit as I'm sure all artists and makers will agree. This group workshop will give you the opportunity to share experiences and give you a formula to take away and help you price your work to achieve maximum profit. 
We will also show you how to price your work ready for galleries and what questions they are likely to ask 
Places limited £14.95 inc tea/coffee and handout
