Event Details

Explore monoprinting as art-making medium, using textured items, printing inks and a home-made gelli-plate. You will be guided, step-by-step through the printmaking process and shown through demonstration by artist, Hermien van der Merwe.
Monoprinting is a very satisfying medium to experiment with. It’s effortless and full of pleasant surprises! Bring our friends and treat yourself to a day of creative fun.
In this workshop you will learn to:

  • Use gelli-plates to create monoprints (Every participant will work on a separate gelli-plate.)
  • Experiment with colours / textures / shapes and stencils, using a variety of printmaking objects, e.g., plant material / paper / fabric etc.
    Please bring textured items for printing, such as soft plants and flowers, lace or textured fabrics, paper cuttings, feathers, or anything else to create texture or shape in your monoprint. Also bring some old magazines and your apron.
    Optional: I would encourage you to bring your own choice of art paper for your best prints. A3-size; 160gms or thicker; smooth, multimedia paper makes the best artworks. (I will have a limited amount of art paper available per person.)
