Intro to Monotype

Monotypes are prints made without the use of etched or carved plates. Each monotype is unique, though typically the technique results in a related series of work.

In this workshop we will make a series of unique prints using natural materials; leaves, grasses and other found materials, to create imagery. 

Monotypes are a great introduction to printmaking and no prior printing or art experience is needed. Come prepared to experiment and play!

Fee: $40
All materials will be provided.
Materials fee: $15 per student.

Shellac Plate Printmaking: 2-day Workshop

Registration at BainbridgeBARN.org

Shellac Plate printmaking is a low-tech and versatile technique for creating etching-like intaglio prints as well as subtly textured collographs. Through demos and lots of hands-on work we will create and print plates using both shellac and water-based polyurethane on an illustration board matrix. Students will be encouraged to experiment with the wide range of effects that can be achieved with shellac plates to express their own visual ideas and aesthetic. In consideration of chemical sensitivities, pre-made shellac plates will be supplied; only water-based polyurethane will be used in liquid form during the workshop. Some printmaking experience helpful but not required.
