Monotype & Texture

Friday 26 January 2024
10am – 5pm

An intensive 6-hour workshop with Alessia De Bortoli

The monotype technique consists in the direct application of ink on matrices which can be of various materials and which must be smooth, not engraved. The use of materials with different textures and stencils allows you to generate ink impressions that explore a great aesthetic variety.

More information

The rapid and versatile process allows the creation, with the use of the intaglio press, of a unique print example, often followed by surprising prints with residual ink, the so-called ghosts. During the workshop, examples of monotype printing will be presented, materials and tools suitable for the technique will be illustrated and its expressive possibilities will be explored. The students will be guided in the creation of their own matrices and will make a variety of unique and unrepeatable prints from them.

The inks used for the workshop are sustainable and do not require the use of solvents, allowing you to work with a wide choice of bright colours; the prints will be made on Fabriano printing paper.
