This workshop will introduce workshop attendees to various monoprinting techniques combining wood type with letterpress printing.

Monoprinting is a form of printing that has images or lines that can only be made once, unlike most printmaking, where there are multiple originals. Rather than printing an edition of multiple copies of a single image, only one impression is produced.

Monoprinting has a long history and artists including Rembrandt, Blake, Degas, Picasso, Chagall, and Matisse are just a few that have produced monoprints.

Register for this workshop and join the long list of artists who have employed and enjoyed the monoprinting process.

This workshop will be taught by Paul Brown.

In addition, Brown has received awards from the Chicago Book Clinic, the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education, the Miniature Book Society, the American Federation of Arts Design, and the Art Directors Club of Indiana.
