Work with artist Rose Rigley to explore monotype / monoprinting. Rose will demonstrate some of the methods she uses in her own practice, including stencilling, transferring, painting, wiping and reductive techniques. These multilayered methods of working are both painterly and precise with very immediate and unique results. The processes are very appealing to those who like an experimental outcome in their prints. Gestural and textural marks can be achieved using a wide variety of tools that can either remove or apply the ink to your plate, alongside the precise forms of cut and torn stencils. This workshop offers you the chance to explore the boundaries of printmaking through these methods, and enables you to make numerous prints that articulate your own ideas.
- At the end of this workshop you will be able to: Prepare press, registration, select plate and papers and learn inking and printing techniques
- Use stencil shapes as part of the monoprinting process
- Use additive and subtractive methods of monoprinting, including transfer and textural mark making
- Consider composition, colour and interaction of shapes and textures
- Experiment with alternative and found materials to create surprise and interest in the monoprint
- Use layers to build up the complexity of the monoprints (including ghost prints)
Rose has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions, regionally and nationally. Her book-based sculptures have won major art awards. She is part of the Visual Arts team at TAFE (Cairns Campus), teaching drawing, printmaking, sculpture and art theory.
