A chance to experience the beauty and transience of Monoprint – a single, unrepeatable print that exists nowhere else. This taster session focusses very much on the process and through that, the healing power of being present in the moment.
Through a series of simple exercises, you will be guided through periods of making, thinking and meditating. A time to de-stress, enjoy the simplicity of process and feeling the materials in your hand, you will experience Monoprint in an essential and fundamental form.

• Exercises in description
• Exercises in selection
• Following a line
