About the Course

In this fun and inspiring workshop you will learn a number of monoprint techniques on paper and/or fabric. You can work from some of your own images (photos and/or drawings) or from some of mine. Emphasis is on experimenting to achieve a range of visual effects.

By the end of the day you will have:

- Learnt about materials and equipment required for monoprinting
- Studied a range of examples for inspiration and understanding
- Observed a number of demonstrations for inspiration and understanding
- Created a set of printed images to take home with you
- Understood health and safety issues when monoprinting
- Eaten a lot of home made (sometimes home grown!) food
- Received a set of technical handouts to support your day's learning

The workshop is run for groups of 2 people on 2 days negotiated with me (can be weekdays or weekend) and is held in my garden studio close to Richmond Park and Kingston town centre. The session costs £60 each or if you want to do the course on your own it will cost £105.

Although new to advertising my courses on Craft Courses, I have 26 years experience teaching art, textiles and printmaking in further and adult education, in colleges and privately too, so you can be certain of well structured, well paced and inspiring teaching and learning.

I have been a practising artist and designer for 30 years, exhibiting nationwide and working commercially within the filed of illustration and textiles.

Fab day and a fab location! Beautiful garden setting and a great place to learn about printing.
Ruth is an amazing tutor (and makes great cakes to boot!) Couldn't have asked for a better day.

Keen to do some monoprinting, so spent a load of time surfing the web to find out about it. Thought I knew it all and fell at the first hurdle! There is no substitute for one on one tuition and Ruth soon put me on the right track. Charming studio and delightful host!
