The Complete Printmaker – Week One

I’ve just started a year long printmaking course called The Complete Printmaker at Hot Bed Press in Salford.  Over the duration of thirty weeks we’ll be covering lots of different printmaking techniques and I’m hoping to learn lots about how to get better results and how to ink up plates properly!

Here’s my trace monoprint (or monotype) from week one.  It’s from a collection of drawings I’ve just started of all the cameras I’ve ever owned.  Below is the original drawing I made the monoprint from. Next week – Drypoint.Camera Olympus OM20 Monoprint
