Monoprint Madness with Jennifer Cunningham - Babóro Workshop
Jennifer Cunningham | Ireland | Workshop For Children
Parents and children will together use block or relief printing to create their own images! Artist Jennifer Cunningham will guide you in the process.
Using a smooth, inked surface, participants will draw on the back of their paper to create a unique once off print. Depending on the tool you use to draw, this style of monotype can create strong or delicate lines, and often has a light, atmospheric texture. Dress for mess!
Printmaking is believed to have originated as early as the 1st century AD during China’s Han Dynasty. The medium’s ability to reproduce images and create unique visual qualities has influenced everyone from book publishers to graphic designers. Artists in particular have driven the medium forward by experimenting with its various processes, in which ink is moved from one surface to another.
