Spend a day with Kittie, learning about her unique approach to monotype. Monotypes are one-off prints created by rolling or painting colour onto a plastic or metal plate; transfer of the image can be done by hand or using a press.
Kittie takes her inspiration from drawings made out in the field. She works with layers of colour, rolled onto perspex and transferred using a rolling press. During this masterclass, students will be shown how the artist works with layers of transparent colour and a rub- away drawing technique to create richly coloured, painterly prints. Insight will also be given into how Kittie takes her ideas from field to studio.
This workshop is open to both experienced practitioners and beginners.

Please note that short courses are not intended as stand-alone access courses.
Due to the short nature of this course, we do lots of the preparation for you and streamline the process so you get a finished print at the end of the day. This does mean that you will need more training before becoming self-sufficient in this process and are able to work in the studio without assistance.
To access the studio, you may need to attend another weekend course or have some 1-1 training or an induction before gaining access to Edinburgh Printmakers open access studio facilities. How much further training is required is based on each individuals previous printmaking experience.
