This two-day workshop will employ water soluble pencils and crayons giving scope to explore drawing for monoprinting. On the first day there will be experimentation with the technique and materials and on the next day a series of three prints will be produced from an original drawing by working from its ghost onto the printing plate. Washes of colour can also be incorporated. Serialization is a creative technique where ideas grow and a narrative can form. It is one of the more exciting aspects of working in monotypes. You will be shown examples of monotypes by many different artists.
