Wed. October 9: Pressure Printing and Sketchy Monotype Workshop 6:00PM-9:00PM @ The Cedars Union
$60 for Public/$45 for CU Members
Pressure monotype printing is a method that uses an inked plate and the pressure of a drawing utensil to transfer line work onto a sheet of paper. Participants can bring in a photograph or drawing to trace and printmaker Adrienne Lichliter will demonstrate how to translate it into a monotype. This process does not require a printing press and may be repeated at home. Materials included.

6:30-9:30PM Free for CU Members/CU Membership Required
Learn various ways to use the etching press and mini-print station through quick demonstrations in drypoint, collagraph, monotype, and relief. While there won’t be time for participants to practice each of these processes during the workshop, CU members will learn to use the print station and experiment moving forward.
