Learn how to create striking, urgent and playful prints through the accessible yet complex art of mono-printing. This course will focus on an experimental approach to analogue mono-printing, working predominantly on paper. Content and image will be guided by participants interests in conjunction with developing a visual understanding of the local landscape. Participants will be encouraged to produce a series of related works in this productive and fun session. You will be given complete creative freedom over the designs that you decide to create. The class will be studio based and is suitable for complete beginners and those who have tried mono-printing and want to learn more about the technique from a master mono-printer!
“The creation of something new is not accomplished by intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the things it loves.” Carl Jung, Switzerland, 1875 – 1961
