Basic Monoprint with Mimi Boston


PaperWorkers Local is offering a beginning monoprint class taught by printmaker and glass artist Mimi Boston. This class is open to learners of any level from absolute beginner and up.



Making monoprints is a fun and easy way to try your hand at printmaking and familiarize yourself with the basics. No specific tools or complicated techniques are required. A huge variety of one-of-a-kind images can be made in a short time with an equally huge variety of possibilities for personal expression.




Students will learn to use a press and work with ink. They will make images using a range of methods, from making marks by hand to inking found objects, and will be able to experiment toward developing methods of their own.



Students only need to bring paper to print on. All other materials will be provided. However, students will want to collect materials with interesting textures that can be inked and run through the press. These need to be flat materials such as cloth, textured papers, and so-on.

The workshop is on Thursday, November 15th from 5:30 until 8:30.

There are only 6 seats available. Tuition is $40. Click on the following link to reserve your place.
