Spent the afternoon at a monoprinting workshop today. Very different from the type of prints I normally produce.
The process is a lot more simple then I'm used to but thats not to say its easy to get results, as you have a lot less control over how your print will turn out.
I started off creating this print of Willow Field Tower using a couple of techniques giving some interesting results. As you can see my registration is a bit off leaving a huge chunk missing from the roof
This print i made is a scene from the workshop where Ellen is inking up a plate with a roller for one of the girls.
Was good fun and found Ellen to be a great teacher, I would definitely like to experiment with monoprint again in the future.
It was really good to meet other printers, and be inspired by their work. Such a wide range of styles and techniques.
I had to buy some handmade cards while I was there, especially after painstakingly designing and printing my own cards over the last month. I felt an increased sense of admiration for their work. It's actually the first bit of christmas shopping I've done this year.
