Mono Printing in Water colour with Ben Fennessy WORKSHOP

Warrnambool School OF Art presents-

Mono Prints with Water Colour with Ben Fennessy

Date Sunday 26th September 2021  10am -4pm


What you will learn

You will spend an enjoyable day learning how to create strong mono print images, with the delicacy of water colours. This low-tech, non-toxic process involves separating water colour paints onto individual acetate plates then reconstituting them as prints, using a press. The finished product is a delicate and evocative reinterpretation of the original image.

After practicing this multi-plate method, you will have an opportunity to experiment with your own images and try additional mark making that is not possible with traditional water colour painting.


What to bring

  • Your lunch
  • Your imagination and willingness to try something new!
  • A set of water colour paints and brushes
  • A plate or palette for mixing colours
  • One or two A4 size simple images and/or photos that you would like to reproduce
  •  A sketchpad and pencils for creating an original image to rework as a mono print.

What is supplied

  • Morning tea
  • Paper
  • Acetate sheets
  • Containers for mixing paints
  • Mixing mediums
