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 required.

The course delves into inspiring colour and design combinations and includes multi layered patterning and texture techniques.
For those who love colour and experimental image creation this class is for you! All levels welcome.
