Though monoprints use materials that can make multiple copies of one design, the technique utilizes and single impression of an image, then reworking the image so no two prints are exactly alike.
This technique will be taught at the March ReArt:Monoprints event on Saturday, presented by the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
The workshop will be taught by local artist Naomi Bays, who is also the chairwoman of the Arts Council of Kanawha Valley. The technique to be taught in the workship requires no press, and can be used with simple household items. It can also be combined with collages or scrapbooks.
The workshop is free and is open to participants ages 12 and older. Class is from 1pm to 4pm. For inquiries and registration, contact Will Taylor at (304) 941-3281. The Habitat for Humanity ReStore is located at 815 Courts Street, Charleston, WV.
