The Archive collection of Glasgow Print Studio has been built up since the Studio was founded in 1972. It includes prints, plates, stage proofs, photographs, slides and many other items which relate to the organisation and to printmaking in the West of Scotland.

Advanced Monoprinting with Fiona Wilson

  • 16 — 17 July 2016 10am-5pm

The aim of this weekend course is to introduce a wide range of techniques possible in the monotype process through the use of collage, drawing and multiple plate projects.

Aimed at the experienced artist and printmaker, participants will be encouraged to pursue their artistic vision using monotype as a markmaking tool, exploring the difference between a monoprint and a monotype and learn how each can be achieved by introducing additional simple techniques. Different marks can be achieved manually or with the use of an etching press and both will be explored over the two days. The tutor approach will be energetic and open, as each student's individual style will dictate the direction of the workshop.
