Printmaking at Half Acre Studios: ​Exploring the Monotype.



Come and experience working in Half Acre Studios, run by artist and tutors Sam Halstead and Phoebe Stannard. Boasting a bespoke sculpture, drawing and print studio, surrounded by a lush sculpture garden at the top of picturesque Boscastle, a harbour village on the North Cornish coast.

Monotype is an experimental and versatile printmaking technique, half way between painting, print and drawing, with this quick and engaging printing method you will be able to create a diverse range of atmospheric affects. In this course we will cover a wide range of monoprinting techniques, concentrating on a new technique each day, including direct, reductive and additive techniques, masks, stencils and 2 plate printing in monochrome and colour. Using the studio environment, imagery from the sculpture garden and the Cornish landscape students will be encouraged to develop their personal choice of imagery and make a series of one-off prints.

We will limit numbers to a maximum of 6 students to allow lots of space and individual tuition. Printing paper will be available to buy at cost price, other materials included in the cost. Waterproofs and messy clothes advised.

We will be working as safely as possible, following government advice, with hand wash stations and sanitiser available. Tutor has an up to date DBS check.
