Courses

Sunday 5 November, 11-4pm

Tutor: Michelle Avison

Cost: £70. Inks included. Paper available to buy or bring your own. Please bring thin chine collee papers (coloured Japanese/ handmade/ decorative papers/ previously drawn or printed papers).

Work with artist Michelle Avison to explore different ways of making monotype prints. Bring a sketchbook, drawings, photographs or a found image to work from and explore ways of developing your work using trace monotype, reductive techniques and stencils. Working from your personal resources and starting points, find out how to use the monotype process to develop your image making. We will use oil based inks on this course- please see below for our next Monotype course in the New Year, when we will work specifically with water washable inks, to explore the particular possibilities of those.


“it was lovely being in a studio environment with like minded people and with some one to guide us, who knew what they were doing but magically didn’t get in the way of us doing it for ourselves”.

“I actually loved all of it. So great to have time to experiment stage by stage.” Stephanie Kennedy, Drypoint Taster.

“I enjoyed being guided through the technique yet with the freedom to be creative and experimental. I loved the excitement during the final printing. Endless varieties of tea, coffee and homemade muffins rounded it off perfectly.” Angela Mugglestone, Lino Taster

"The encouragement of experimentation and the varied techniques learnt in such a short space of time were great. The lovely summary at the end where we discussed each other’s work meant I felt the benefit of what the whole class had learnt and got ideas for what I might do next time." Lottie McCarthy, Collograph Taster.
