In this environmentally friendly Drypoint and Monoprinting Workshop, you’ll draw your image onto metal plates using an etching needle (drypoint), and add colour by painting with printmaking inks on plastic plates (monoprint) to create fabulous original prints using a small etching press, which is fun and easy to use!  You’ll learn about water wash-up non-toxic inks and print on traditional Western and Japanese papers. Make limited edition prints, Artist’s Books, or simply explore printmaking to expand your practice. The possibilities are endless!  Bring plant material, photographs - anything that will inspire you to create unique original handmade prints. Beginners are welcome.

Liz Menard is a Toronto-based printmaker, visual artist, and educator. Her practice includes drawing, painting, and printmaking. “My interest is in landscape and how our perception of the landscape helps us define who we think we are. I am particularly drawn to water – especially fens, bogs, streams, rivers and lakes as well as the life these systems support. However, I am increasingly concerned about not only our water, but the native plant species and wildlife which our water systems sustain. Like our environment, these things need to be cared for, protected, and nurtured. Please visit Liz’s website: www.lizmenard.ca
