About this event

This introductory workshop covers the basic steps of how to make multi-layered monotypes using a printing press. Keeping things simple, we will use a 3 x 3 x 3 format: three shapes, three colors, and three layers. Participants will make their own stencils of simple shapes from Duralar film (a more versatile alternative to acetate). Using brayers to roll non-toxic water soluble block ink onto plexi plates, participants will roll out a different color for each of the three-layers. The magic happens as we build up the layers of color over the stenciled shapes! No previous printmaking experience is needed.
