Monotype is an extremely exciting process with which beautiful and painterly mark-making is transferred from an inked surface onto paper. For this class you will be shown a variety of ways of applying ink to a plate, experimenting with different implements to see how they create different textures and how they transfer onto paper. Monotypes are unique, one-off prints.
Drypoint etching is a technique that creates wonderful linear, drawn marks and is a particularly direct form of intaglio printing as the plate preparation is minimal with no exposure to chemicals or acid. Lines are scratched directly into the plate using various implements—most commonly with an etching needle. Multiple prints and editions can be made from the same plate with drypoint.
Frances Stanfield is an artist with a strong focus on printmaking and drawing. Frances is the author of The Drawing and Printmaking Ideas books and is co-founder and tutor for the London Drawing Group, a collective of three artists who aim to make art classes more accessible and affordable.
