Monoprinting is the production of a one-off print which cannot be reproduced identically. Diane uses a silk screen and water based dyes to paint jewel like imagery onto silk.

Join Diane in her textile studio at South Square, as she illustrates this delicate art form.

What to expect:

Using brushes provided in the workshop, you will paint onto a taught screen which is stretched over a large frame. Using layers, removing dye and mark making tools an image can be built up giving depth and texture.

To fix the final image, a rubber blade called a squeegee, transfers a chemical paste onto the dye which is then printed onto pre stretched silk.

The final silk print will measure 35 x 48cm. The different uses for this are endless. Embellish the print further with embroidery, make the print into a cushion or simply frame it.

It is possible to get two prints, but the second one will be less vibrant.

Suitable for beginners.

Equipment and material are provided. Silk fabric will be £2.00 cost price for second print.

Break for lunch at approx 12.30pm. Booking advised if you are considering Plenty at the Square Café. Café closes at 3.30pm

*Please note, the silk will require steaming and washing to fix the ink. Your design will be ready for collection the following week.

What to bring:

Participants are encouraged to bring source materials / sketches / images or cuttings to inspire the design.

Please bring an old shirt or apron to protect your clothes.
