Sunday Session: Monotypes – Playing with Colour
With Joshua Sleeman-Taylor
Sunday 2 June 2019 > 11am-3pm
An introduction to monotype printing for all ages. Monotype printmaking is a technique that usually only produces one print. They are made by painting onto a smooth surface; anything, including plastic, metal, glass or even stone can be used. Learn how transparent colours interact with each other when overlaid. This can be a lot of fun and produces unexpected results. Anyone can make something that looks great and enjoy experimenting with colour while they do it!
