MONOTYPE

Whether you are new to printmaking or are seeking to expand your skills, Print Lab Australia offers a range of workshops that will cater for your needs.




Monotype is the most painterly form of printmaking. This technique involves drawing or painting with ink on a smooth surface. The image is then transferred to paper using a press. Monotypes offer a range of unique textures, rich tones, marks and patterns. The resulting image is one of a kind, and cannot be repeated. It is a perfect medium for beginners as well as more advanced printmakers and is an excellent skill to add to your repertoire.

This 3 hour workshop is suitable for beginners and intermediate printmakers, and you will be introduced to the principals of montype printmaking. We will work together to explore gestures and selective wiping, as well ghost print techniques*.


*All materials are supplied, with additional specialist printmaking paper available for sale as required.




You will be expertly guided through the process by PLA directors, Monika Lukowska and Melanie McKee.

Monika is an artist from Poland currently based in Perth. She obtained her MA from the E. Geppert Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Wroclaw, Poland and MFA from San Francisco Art Institute, USA. Monika’s artworks have been widely exhibited internationally in China, Japan, Turkey, Sweden and Germany amongst others, and she is currently pursuing her PhD in Fine Arts at Curtin University in Perth. Her main interest encompasses place and the ways in which we can discover our surroundings through creative practice.

Melanie is a printmaker and art teacher, dividing her time between the studio, Curtin University and the Perth Centre for Photography where she works as the Co-Manager of the gallery. She has exhibited both locally and internationally, notably in group exhibitions at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou China (2015), and a solo exhibition at Tuner Galleries in Perth (2017). Melanie has been awarded several grants in order to carry out her research and creative practice. She has a PhD in Fine Art, and her interests centre on how memory of place can be explored through printmaking practice.
