Monoprint Collage









Monoprint Collage


Create some monoprints; rearrange them into a collage.


Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Cost – $60 (includes use of paint and substrate and brayers)

Create some patterned, textured monoprints on Yupo….then cut them all up into random shapes and make a new, collaged, image. You’ll be using a 6×6” gel plate to print but there will also be a few larger and smaller gel plates in various shapes available in the studio to use. We’ll also try some die cuts.

  • Roll of shop towels
  • At least one large sheet of Yupo paper.
  • Matte medium
  • Gel medium (soft or regular)
  • Substrate for the collage – that could be a canvas, a painted board, or more Yupo
  • scissors
  • Baby wipes
  • Brushes or any other mark making tools that do not have a sharp point (sharpness could damage the gel substrate)
  • A roll of one inch wide green painters tape
  • Usual painting supplies: water bucket, apron
  • No need to bring paints – PAINT USE IS PART OF THE CLASS COST



        Cost of the workshop is $60 total and is payable in advance either by cheque (sent to the Tweed address above) or by e-transfer. A full refund will be given if you cancel the class by Oct. 19. A 50 per cent refund will be given after that up to and including the class day.

        The maximum number of students is six for this class.




        There is a good bed and breakfast in Tweed, and several hotels in Belleville (30 to 40 minute drive from Tweed).

        I will have baked goods and coffee throughout the class but we won’t be taking a lunch break since the hours are short. Therefore, if you need to eat a lunch during the class, please brown bag some food.  After the class, if you’re hungry, there are a few restaurants in Tweed and several more in Belleville.

        This is a country studio. That means well water and septic. That means all dirty water will be poured into a bucket for later disposal by me and all clean water will be scooped out of a clean water bucket. There is no running water in the studio.

        Since I chose not to drill for a well and to install a septic for the studio, that means washrooms are in the house which is about 15 feet away from the studio. We have a raised bungalow with a washroom on the ground level floor and the main washroom on the main floor which is about 12 steps above ground.       



If you have any questions, send me an email or give me a phone call.

I look forward to painting with you
