In February 2008 the Artists' Press held its first monoprint workshop.
Five artists took part they are: Josie Grindrod (Cape Town), Griet van der
Meulen (Graskop) and Sue Dickinson, Laura Batchelor, Erica Schoeman (all
from Nelspruit) with Mark Attwood and Syneth Nyandeni as facilitators. The monoprint workshop took on its own energy right from the first
tentative application of ink to acetate. Each of the artists took to the technique
and branded it as their own, keeping the printers very busy at the press!
There was much laughter, quiet contemplation, anguish and discussion over
the five days. The results speak for themselves and show each artist's ability
and individual voice.
We hold monoprint workshops regularly (once or twice a year), for details of when the next workshop will be held please contact us.
