Monotype Printmaking Workshops
Below are the descriptions for both beginning and intermediate/advanced monotype printmaking. In the studio and all workshops/classes we will be using safe, non-toxic water-based inks that clean up with soap and water. This allows for quick and easy cleanup as well as a chemical and solvent free environment.
Please visit the calendar page for scheduled classes & workshops.
