Trent Walter Workshop: The Unique Multiple Image


Trent Promo Image

This workshop aims to explore a multifaceted approach to image making through monotype print processes. While each impression will be unique, multiple processes will be explored on the same sheet of paper to create a complex set of relations in the picture plane. Using both the litho and etching presses at Umbrella Studios, participants will engage with image transfer, rubbings, and monotypes from metal and plastic plates. The results will combine the painterly with the graphic in an exploration of the contemporary print.

A note to participants: Please bring some source materials to the workshop. These could be examples of your own work, newspaper/magazine cuttings that take your interest, collage elements, drawings etc. Various coloured etching inks, watercolours and roller if you have them. Enclosed shoes must be worn at all times.

Materials supplied: Paper, Copper, Plastic Etching Plates, Newsprint, A variety of coloured etching Inks
