with Wendy Tate
Join artist Wendy Tate in a workshop that offers traditional and experimental approaches to mono printing for artists and beginners using plates, oil based inks and an etching press.
Monoprinting using the reduction technique illustrated and/or nature monoprinting using leaves, flowers, textured materials to print their own individual work of art. Participants are also invited to work on deli paper, transferring marks and layering onto a separate piece of paper.
It is envisaged that participants will make a few hand made prints to take away at the end of the session.
