Artist and printmaker Maria Doering will give you a glimpse into the endless experimental
possibilities of colour Monotype printmaking. Students will manipulate non-toxic Akua
Printmaking ink on a Plexiglas plate combining it with found materials and mark-making
through the use of various materials including cotton swabs, toothpicks, brushes and pencils.
You will then learn how to create imagery by layering multiple colours. You are welcome to
bring flat found materials like fabric scraps, yarn, cut paper, and plant foliage to experiment
with or you can use the materials provided. Please bring a sketchbook or notebook for taking
notes and an old t-shirt or apron as printmaking can be as messy as it is fun. This workshop
would be perfect taken on its own or for a richer experience take it in combination with the
Black & White Monotype workshop the evening before.
Wednesday, September 20, 2017, 6:30pm – 9:30pm • Cost: $50 • All printmaking supplies included.
