A taste of monoprinting

This year I joined the Brisbane City Council Art Bites program, running 2 monoprinting workshops.  The idea of the program is to expose residents to creative experiences.

I had a lot of fun, even if things did get a bit frantic at times due to the large class sizes (15!).  Below is a few photos from the workshops.  Thanks to Access Arts, particularly Joelene and Anthea.  Its nice just to walk in and run a workshop without having to worry about bookings and all that admin and paperwork!

willing participants getting some instruction....

the workshops ran smoothly thanks to
my great assistants, Jan and Craig

Inking up

Thumper, my press, got a good workout!


  1. WEll, everyone seems very focussed.A good workshoop, I;d say.
    Sandra, I'd like to know a little more about "Thumper" if you don't mind.I am considering getting a press and, while I've never been entirely happy about the smaller ones, you and your class seem to have a happy relationship.

    Size limits are a major concern for me so if you could tell me Thumper's width I'd be grateful.

    1. Hi, its a german ABIG press, width of the bed is 50cm. Its a fully geared press and a great worker! I've had it for 4 years. I store it on a trolley which I can wheel around the house to wherever I am working. I love my 'Thumper'. :-)

  2. Thank you very much for this info. I shall continue to look "with evil intent" at the superfluous mower in the basement...
