Techniques covered are mono printing or monotype, lino, collograph and wood engraving.
You will be able use a variety of imagery for this course, this could be taken from photographs, to a simple hand drawn sketch, or perhaps you wish to draw your inspiration from the work of the great artists throughout the decades. Whichever you wish to use, each print you produce will be completely individual.
