Workshop Overview

Trace monotype is an exciting method of mark-making that combines the qualities of printmaking with the expressive, direct joy of drawing and rubbing. This workshop will allow beginners to jump immediately into printmaking and it gives skilled printmakers another tool for producing rich, layered work. Trace monotype (also known as transfer drawing) is a direct-drawn printmaking technique. After inking a plate, paper is placed on top of the inky surface. Using a pen, stick or stylus, the image is drawn on the back of the fresh paper. The pressure of the drawing tool transfers the image onto the paper! Participants will learn ways to produce trace monotypes without a press! Trace monotype is typically done without a printing press, so participants can quickly adapt and use this technique in their home studios.
