A monoprint is a painterly one-off print whose characteristic is vibrant colors and effects unable to achieve in any other medium. Because of its simplicity, monoprinting is suitable for beginners stepping into the printmaking world, as well as for those with some experience who want to extend their knowledge into this easy yet sophisticated world of printmaking. Practical step by step demonstrations are followed by individual tuition and advanced techniques will be covered for the most experienced artist.
