Continuous Monoprinting is a fantastic process of print making that is easy, fun and
has a high degree of chance. This is a reductive process where the image on the
plate, slowly reveals itself after successive prints. The participant will leave this course
with numerous images, no two of which will be the same. No printmaking experience
