Bending the Rules: Unorthodox Monotype and Monoprint
March 24 @ 9:00 am - March 25 @ 4:00 pm
Intended as a sequel to the previous weekend workshop, deepen and broaden your expectations by pushing the limits of monotype and monoprint using Akua Intaglio inks. A matrix is only the first step in exploiting opportunities for “controlled accidents” and “calculated spontaneity.” Learn to place contiguous colors with viscosity rolls, interrupt one layer with another to achieve the intersection of two, or more layers. The long drying time of soy-based inks allows unorthodox moves, and yields many surprises. Relief blocks lend themselves particularly to transfer processes, but the workshop will encompass direct work as well as plates or blocks made in the past.
