Monotype at CPW

Date: 15th – 16th December 2018

Time: 10am – 4pm

fee: £100

Monotype is one of the simplest and most direct forms of printmaking. The process involves applying ink to a plate that is then printed onto dampened paper using an etching press. As its name suggests it is a one off process that yields unique printed artwork and as such is the closest printmaking comes to painting. Over the course of the two days participants will learn a number of monotype techniques such as printing with leaves and feathers, using a roller and 3 colour reduction monotype. This technique involves using 3 separate coloured designs brought together to produce stunning combinations of layered tone and hue.

cyanotype and photocopy transfer workshop

This weekend I held a two day workshop at Cardiff Print Workshop. On Saturday the day was taken up by Cyanotype, a wonderfully simple form of alternative photography that produces vivid blue prints when exposed to ultra-violet light. Here at CPW we use a sun bed lamp but on Saturday we had a much stronger source of U.V. during this year’s summer heatwave!

Sunday we used copies generated from our new CPW laser printer to transfer images to wood, card, collage and fabric.

SUMMER WORKSHOPS AT CARDIFF PRINT WORKSHOP-CYANOTYPE AND PHOTOCOPY TRANSFER

 

CYANOTYPE AND PHOTOCOPY TRANSFER

14-15 July 2018

10am – 4pm

£100

Cyanotype is an antique photographic process distinctive for its Prussian blue monochrome prints. It was invented in the Victorian era but was quickly forgotten as photography improved, only surviving as a copying technique for documents and plans in the form of blueprints. Learn to mix and apply the chemicals to a variety of surfaces, expose objects and digital negatives, develop and tint the results.

The photocopy transfer workshop will explore the possibilities of collage using the technique of adhesive and solvent transfer transfer. Any printed material such as photocopies, magazines or newspaper may be used to create distinctive works of art on a variety of substrates.
