HM: Monoprinting, or making one-of-a-kind prints on fabric or paper, has been around for centuries. In this one-day workshop we will use a pre-made gelatin mold (recipe will be supplied) as our printing surface. We will roll the paint onto the mold, add textures, and then print onto white cotton.
Many things can be used to make interesting textures: pressed leaves and flowers, bubble wrap, lace, empty spools, grids from berry containers, craft foam, etc.
Participants will select one monoprint to work with, adding batting, hand stitching and embellishment. This sample can later (at home) be incorporated into a small project such as a sewing kit, as featured in Quilting Arts Magazine, October/November 2016.
The class fee of $60 will include paints and foam to make stamps.
