Into The Fold - Multi Mono Workshop


Printmaking can often be a very intimate process, so in their monoprinting workshop Alice Tye and Saara Karppinen encouraged participants to work together to create a unique collaborative process. All the participants were new to the process of monoprinting, so everyone coming to the workshop had very little preconceived notions of what they were going to do, and had to rely on each other as they worked. In this sense, their prints are a group representation of learning how to work with a new material.
