Each 2 day Monotypie / Gumprint Workshop has a maximum of 5 participants. Each person will have his or her individual workstation. There they will learn how to roll, paint or wipe ink on a plexiglass plate, which later will be printed by Tom on an etching press. Collage elements, direct drawing with pencils or tusche can be overprinted with layers of monotype. Gumprinting is an exciting process that actually is paper lithography made from photocopies, which can be combined endlessly with layers of monotype.
