Lesley Crawley 

One day: Print making course

Lesley Crawley course:


Monoprinting is all about making a one-off, repeatable print. It is a simple concept but the variations in materials and techniques make it a varied and exciting one.

This introductory day will show you how to produce prints using stencils from paper embossed wallpaper and other materials and how to create original marks using a variety of tools ranging from cotton rags, scrim, cotton buds, white spirit and mount board. We will be using oil-based inks. 

Prices: one day course. £70.00 per person all materials included. Coffee and tea supplied, please bring a packed lunch
