Mokulito is a wonderful coming together of the relief and planographic printmaking families. It is the perfect process if you love both drawing and carving, and you don’t want to choose between the two. You can have the best of both worlds combined in to one!
Mokulito was developed in the 1970s as a non-toxic variation of lithography, combining the qualities of woodcut with the delicate and spontaneous mark making of lithography.
You will draw on to your prepared plywood surface using greasy drawing materials to produce tonal images. You can also employ woodcut carving techniques to bring crisp areas of light into your prints and further develop the image. The beautiful grain of the wood remains ever present to give a mid-tone to your prints.
During this course you will work at your own pace, fitting your printing time around your day to day life. You will work through the processes demonstrated to you in the tutorial videos, whether you are a a complete beginner or experiences printmaker you will be able to adapt your prints to suit your style and level of experience.
Scarlett will show you how to set up a printing space in your home and work to professional standards, whether you're working in your home studio or on your kitchen table.

I love Scarlett's online printmaking courses. Everything sets you up for success, from the box of materials you receive at the start, the tutorial videos which are super-easy to follow, and, best of all, the online workshops where you get to take time out to focus on something creative and share work with other participants. Thoroughly recommend.
I have done several of Scarlett's courses now and have found them all brilliant. The course is very well designed from beginning to end and Scarlett is a very approachable and fun teacher who is really passionate about printmaking and passing on her vast knowledge.
The materials box is lovely to receive and means that there are minimal extras to provide yourself before you can get started. The course is mostly self-led with tutorial videos, but this is accompanied by weekly Zoom sessions where you can work alongside other students and ask Scarlett questions or share work. This was a breath of fresh air and it was great to meet new people, especially during lockdown times! I found myself really looking forward to the Zoom sessions each Saturday.
If you are looking for a fun way to try something new as a beginner, or add to your existing printmaking skills, I highly recommend Scarlett's courses!
