workshop held at Little House last week. Presented by master printmaker, Kathryn Kain, the one-day
workshop was a great success.
Kain teaches the basics of monotype printmaking using oil-based inks, brayers, and plates to produce
unique prints on 100% rag Rives BFK printmaking paper on her small etching press. The size was limited
to 1/4 sheet (15” x 11”). There was 8” x 10” plexiglas plates available, and other random sizes all designed
for the 1/4 sheet of Rives paper. Lace, stencils, collage, mylar, drypoint, and chine-collé was be incorporated into the prints.
