Participants will explore this creative and intuitive technique to create one-of-a-kind monotype prints with artist, Andrea F. Huffman. Using found objects, plant material, stencils and masks on an inked printing plate made from unflavored gelatin, multiple images and colors can be layered to explore the many possibilities to create intriguing designs. Students will create their own stencils as well as using commercial ones. Techniques for registration, clean borders and bleed prints will be covered. Paper and water soluble inks will be used for this workshop, however, applications for fabric will also be discussed. Participants will receive a handout with the recipe to make the plates on their own after the workshop.
