WORKSHOPS
Colour Monotype Workshop at Visual Voice Fine ArtJoin us for another fun day of printmaking at Visual Voice. Monotype is a very experimental and direct process of image creation through the use of printmaking equipment. You will not be creating an edition of multiples but instead remove ink from a plate with various rags, Q-tips, and brushes and found materials to create a single print. You may create up to 10 different images during this workshop using multiple colours as well as multiple layers.
You can come prepared with an image idea or spend the day experimenting with found materials with this much more direct and painterly printmaking technique. You do not need previous knowledge of printmaking to participate in this workshop. Please bring an apron or old t-shirt and any thin/flat found materials like dried leaves, thread, paper cut outs. If you can’t think of anything, not to worry, there will be materials supplied as well.
If the weather is forecast to be beautiful we are planning on setting up the workshop outside next to the gallery, in case of rain it will be inside the gallery space.

The instructor is artist and printmaker Maria Doering, who teaches at NSCAD and has taught 2 other workshops at Visual Voice. See Maria's bio here. *Includes the use of a press!
