March 14 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

Name of Class: Monotype Printing and Mixed Media Workshop

Teacher: Linda Tay’nahza’

Date: March 14-16 (Thursday-Saturday) 

Time: 10am-3:30pm

Cost: $425  (Includes all classroom supplies, see optional supply list)


Description: MakeSpace is honored to welcome Linda Tay’nahza back to Southern Utah!

The monotype is a simple, organic direct image transfer form of printmaking. It provides a unique opportunity for bold, brilliant, high color saturation or the soft, dreamy effects of the ghost.

Print imagery often magically spins off, flows into consecutive prints, one idea, then the next from one print to the next, providing an interesting and sometimes surprising opportunity to develop a personal visual dialogue.

Linda will lead process demonstrations, providing students with inspiration to mix and match varied applications including :

  • Additive and subtractive
  • Chine colle’
  • Wabi-sabi
  • Collagraph
  • Blended rolls
  • Multiple drops
  • Bleed prints
  • Ghost prints…and more

A highly creative process, interaction between participants is always fun and the studio is abuzz in a way that only Linda can entice!

Students will choose areas of personal interest, or try them all as they create unique artwork that expresses their individual style. No previous art experience is necessary.

*By request from students who have participated in Linda’s previous workshops, we are extending this year’s workshop to three days to allow for more studio and press time to experiment with the many elements introduced.

Optional Supply List:
This list offers suggestions for optional materials workshop participants might like to try incorporating into their prints. There are so many possibilities. Artists may have favorite things from other processes that might work well in translating to creating monotypes. Remember the printing plate is flat and smooth. The press will provide pressure to transfer the image. Materials that are too thick won’t work well. Here a few possibilities that might be tried and bring plenty to share with other students if you’d like.

  • String
  • Yarn
  • Lace
  • Grass
  • Leaves
  • Feathers
  • Ribbon
  • Decorative papers
  • Plastic wrap
  • Bits of cardboard
  • Tooth picks
  • Bubble wrap ( with small bubbles)
  • Pages from old books
  • Stamps
  • coins

Please feel free to also bring your favorite brushes!
