There are many ways of making a monoprint- a one off print. The method that Hetty teaches is by using an etching press, plastic stencils and a sheet of Perspex. Water based ink is rolled onto the Perspex, cut stencils are then inked up and placed onto the pre-inked plate. The plate is then pushed through the press, forcing the image onto the paper.
This is a great way to experiment with colour and shape. Bring some ideas with you if you can, we have a good collection of inspirational books available too.

Hetty Haxworth has been printmaking for the last 25 years since leaving The Glasgow School of Art. She works in a variety of printmaking techniques. Her work has been shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Royal Scottish Academy, Society of Scottish Artists and the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Arts.
She lives and works from a studio in rural Aberdeenshire where the ever-changing colours and shapes of the landscape are an important source of inspiration for her abstract prints. As the countryside alters with the seasons, her work responds to transient shifts of light, capturing moments in colour.
