This is a project I facilitated for Fort Point Fall ’15 Open Studios.  We made monoprints by rubbing out designs, inking up using pattern materials like leaves, mesh and lace, and blocked out ink using ripped paper.  The prints were hand-pressed using a homemade brayer.  We used acrylic block printing ink and re-purposed tiles as a plate and printed on newsprint (it’s quite absorbant).  Participants were mostly kids 4-8, but a few free-spirited adults joined in too!
