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.
