Click here to Register  

Participants will make a multi-colour print using monotype printing and cut stencils. This workshop will investigate the possibilities of the cut stencil in printmaking to create figurative and abstract forms. Participants will cull stencils that will then be laid out on a plate and printed. They will then remove parts of the stencil and print again, similar to a traditional reduction print but way quicker! Participants will also have the option to play with transparency and overlapping colours if they want.
