Monotype Extravaganza

  • Runaway Press 205 Grand Avenue Bellingham, WA, 98225 United States (map)

A monotype extravaganza!

This all-day workshop and interactive print event will showcase a collaborative approach to the creation of large scale monotypes. Utilizing multiple handmade and photo mechanicaly produced plates from previous workshops, as well as forms made in advance, we will print new works using Runaway Press' Brand etching press. Participants will create a series of unique large format prints that exhibit a variety of monotype techniques. We will explore a variety of materials, from simple plexiglass methods to aluminum and steel intaglio matrices, to laser cut styrene plates and other substrates. A variety of inking strategies will be shown, including viscosity, trace monotype, split fountain rolls, stenciling, stamping, and more. This will be an interactive event; utilizing both subtractive and additive inking methods, we will invite the workshop attendees to create prints using our multitude of matrices, contributing to the large volume of thematically connected works that each participant will be able to take home.
