About the Course

In this workshop you will be learning the art of blotted line monoprinting which was frequently used by Andy Warhol for his commercial work in the 1950s.

Monoprinting is a form of printmaking that has lines or images that can only be made once, unlike most printmaking, where there are multiple originals.

The blotted line technique combines drawing or tracing and printing and is suitable for beginners and experienced artists alike. What I really love about the blotted line technique is the fact that it allows people who think they can't draw or are very new to drawing to create a beautiful ink drawing.

And although this technique involves the tracing of a source image, due to the student's very individual way of holding the pen and tracing the image, the finished print will be unique to them. You will be able to distinguish the different styles of different students.

For the more experienced or professional artist the blotted line technique can be used in a more advanced way, help with creative blocks and be combined with other techniques.

This class is therefore suitable for complete beginners, you don't need to be able to draw!
