Printmaking 1 Part 1 Assignment 1

Part One of Printmaking 1 was an introduction to the monoprinting technique through a series of exercises and projects aimed at building up experience and skills of a variety of techniques  culminating in Project 4 which involved combining ideas and techniques. We were asked to make a selection of prints to submit for assessment.

Project 1

  • Two early experimental prints (mark making):
