Workshop spotlight: Botanical Monoprinting

Katharina Nyilas is running a very exciting new workshop next week, giving you the chance to experiment with her Botanical Monoprinting technique. Katharina's work is hugely inspired by environmental concerns, and using recycled or unusual reclaimed materials to produce her artwork and teach workshops with.  This class is no exception! You'll be using all sorts of wonderful natural foraged things, such as fallen leaves, winter berries, and plants sourced by Katharina.

To give you a taste of what to expect, Katharina ran a bit of a demo of her workshop last week, with some beautiful results, and took some pictures to share with us.  I don't know about you, but I really want to give this a go!

Katharina's printmaking inductees produced some really beautiful prints, and were thrilled to walk away with a set of monoprinted gift-tags, cards and envelopes.

You don't have to be an artist or a printmaker to do this workshop.  You'll have a lot of fun learning new techniques, and Katharina's confident you'll get a lot out of the experience, alongside some lovely paper goods!

The workshop takes place on Tuesday 26 November, at The Print Shop in Quakers Friars from 6-9pm.
