On this Introduction to monoprinting workshop with Edinburgh artist Suzanne Kemplay, you will explore ways of creating simple, striking images to print onto a range of papers.
This is a hands-on, spontaneous and fun workshop where you will learn the basic skills of monoprinting, one of the most versatile forms of printmaking. It produces unique and playful results, making it ideal for anyone new to printing or art.
Build your confidence by learning how to create your own images using simple mark-making, and different textures and techniques to make a unique image as you layer colours, create shapes and texture, adding and removing ink as you go. Once you’ve created your monoprint you will take a second print revealing your ghost image.
All the equipment you will need is provided, and we will use water-based inks.
The price includes all materials and refreshments.
Please note that The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a first-floor space and unfortunately we do not have lift access.
Introduction to mono-printing: 13 February 2021 2pm-5pm
The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a supportive and welcoming home environment in the Edinburgh New Town. Spaces are limited to allow our artists and designer-makers to offer hands-on help and support. All equipment is provided and all the materials you will need (unless stated otherwise). Just turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.
Refreshment breaks are an important part of The Arienas Collective experiences. They are a time to socialise, make new friends and chat to the artists and designer-makers. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby and are proud to feature locally sourced food and drinks.
The price includes all materials unless stated otherwise, refreshments, and of course you take home all the unique products you have created. All our experiences are also available to book as a private group, please email us for more information.
