Come and have fun experimenting with the many possibilities of monoprinting which will suggest other approaches such as collage, hand painted additions, mixed media or inspire you to explore other areas of printmaking
The object of this workshop is to enjoy the creative process and grasp a basic understanding of different techniques and materials.
Monoprinting is a printmaking process in which drawing or painting is done on a flat non absorbent material such as plastic, glass or metal. The image is transferred using pressure to a sheet of paper. The remaining ink can be reworked, but the subsequent print will not be an exact replica of the previous print. Only one strong impression can be taken, hence the term monoprint.
In 2016 Joan completed the Advanced Diploma of Visual Arts from Goulburn Ovens Institute of TAFE, Wangaratta Campus which built upon previous studies including fabric printing with Corowa College of TAFE. Her work has been recognized with many awards and commendations by judges at numerous festivals and exhibitions
By drawing on Joan’s passion for travel, history and her local environment, she merges overlapping beliefs and ideas of many cultures – often revealing the similarities and shared fascinations inherent to all. Within her work she explores themes of connectiveness and expresses this in a symbolic way by combining these influences , therefore her art will have different meanings to different people.
