Join Susan Yeates, an experienced printmaking tutor from Magenta Sky, for this online course that shows you how to get started with monoprinting.
This course is aimed at complete beginners to monoprint or printmaking in general (or those wishing to try a new technique).
It provides a step-by-step guide for how to get started and breaks down four different ways that you can work with monoprint to create different effects in the ink, as well as multiple layers.
Monoprinting is a fairly simple printmaking technique that involves rolling out or drawing with ink on to a printing surface/plate and creating a mark in
several ways. Paper is placed over the top to create an impression or print. Each print is unique, and monoprinting allows for a certain amount of freedom and expression in the work. There is no need for a printing press and this can be done easily from home with a few simple tools and materials.
The course explain about the tools you need, how to work into the ink and finally how to print.

About the Course Tutor
"My name is Susan and if you don’t know already, I am a printmaking tutor and published author of two printmaking related books: Learning Linocut (an Amazon no.1 bestseller!) and Learn to Earn from Printmaking. There is a third on the way in 2018/2019!
I set up my company 'Magenta Sky' in 2003, just after I left university as a part-time venture. It began as a way of selling my crafts and also teaching printmaking courses and workshops in various arts venues.
Since then I have expanded to teach more classes and workshops, including a unique online printmaking course ‘Introduction to Printmaking’. This online course (Learn Monoprint) includes two of the modules from this longer online programme.
All of my current printmaking / craft books, my longer online course and my printmaking blog can be found on my website www.magenta-sky.com. I look forward to you joining the course and creating some colourful monoprints."
