Nature Monoprinting With Ouida Touchon

October 23rd, 10am to 1pm or 1:30 to 4:30
Find Ouida on instagram @ouidaart

In this class we will explore some of the creative possibilities of handprinting images on paper with both the press or by hand. The process is called a monoprint because each image cannot be repeated exactly nor can it be editioned. This is not a precise art form and lends itself to experimentation and playfulness with various techniques and layers of color. All inks used are water based. We will use plant material as stencils and offsets to create unique and mysterious images that sometimes appear somewhat photographic. The transfer of ink to paper is accomplished with an inked matrix, paper, plant materials and an etching press. Each class member will end the class with several handprints that they are proud of and sometimes real keepers!

Class size limited to 8, Location: Desert Dog Press
Length of class: 3 hours with break of 15 minutes
