An entire weekend of exploring the use of monoprint and stencils on silkscreens with artist Adam Green.
Monoprinting on a screen produces painterly images which cannot be replicated in any other way and the results are often interesting and pleasing. The image is painted directly onto the screen and, because you cannot completely control the ink and how the screen prints the image, there is always an element of surprise.
The use of stencils on a screen can be used to create bold blocks of colour or images with fine detail, depending on how good your craft knife cutting skills are.
Layers can be built up using the positive and negative stencil to create complex screenprints without the use of a darkroom.
The possibilities are endless and both techniques can be used to print on the kitchen table at home, using an easily constructed ‘jig’ to hold the screen – we can provide you with instructions for building one!
Dates: Weekend 1/2 February
Time: 10am to 4pm
Cost: £130 / Members £120
