Upon a friend’s recommendation, I signed up for a monoprint class.
I know what a monoprint is, but I have never, ever done one. So, per instructions, I bought a gelatin plate and a roller. Then I showed up, wearing old clothes and an apron, and really, not knowing what I was going to be doing.
The instructor, Alison, was great. She had a package of materials for everyone, nicely presented, and I felt like I was going to open one of the most exciting presents ever. She also told us a lot of stuff – but better, she showed, and we did. And here are the results.
Now I know how to do a monoprint, and boy, did I have fun! I’m so glad I followed up on my friend’s suggestion.
