Exploring Monotype Printmaking with Lucky Platt

October 20 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

$65.00 – $85.00

This is a full day workshop devoted to monotype printmaking —a uniquely expressive, accessible and nontoxic printmaking form. A monotype print is sometimes referred to as the “painterly print”, as the ink can be applied to the plate much like a painter would use a brush and paint on canvas. Monotype means one unique print, but the ink traces remaining on the plate after being run under the etching press — the ‘ghost’ plate — can provide a starting point for a second plate or even a series of related prints, with wonderful narrative possibilities.

We’ll be working with a variety of multi-purpose plates in a wide range of sizes, including traditional plexi and shaped plates made from repurposed food containers. Participants will go home with many new prints and ideas for further exploration. Fee includes instruction, use of water-soluble studio inks, and a generous allotment of fine printmaking paper. Lucky will also have paper on hand to purchase for those who are extra prolific! All levels of experience are welcome.

Lucky Platt did her undergraduate thesis in monotype printmaking and has been incorporating various printmaking processes into her studio practice ever since. She has furthered her studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Anderson Ranch Arts Center and the Arts Students League of New York, and has printed and taught print workshops throughout Maine, including Maine Media Workshops + College and Running with Scissors. Waterfall Arts hosted Lucky in September 2022 for an open studio exploration of monotype printmaking and she is excited to return for a full-day workshop.
