About the facilitatior:

My name is Chloe, nickname ‘Cleo’, and I am a visual artist and workshop instructor living and working in Cape Town, South Africa. I graduated with a BA (Fine Art) from Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2014 and completed my Masters in Visual Art through UNISA in 2021.
I have exhibited my work in various venues and galleries in Cape Town and abroad, including AVA Gallery, Youngblood Gallery, State of the Art Galley, Gallery ONE 11 and Art B Gallery, as well as Casa Petrarca, Figline Valdarno and Studio BONG in Florence, Italy, and at The Small Print Co. in London.
I regularly host cyanotype workshops, as well as other alternative photographic workshops such as Lumen, Phytogram and Polaroid Emulsion Lift workshops.

Monotype printing is a form of printmaking in which the artist creates a unique, one-of-a-kind print. Unlike other printmaking techniques, such as etching or woodcut, where multiple copies of an image can be produced, each monotype is a singular piece of art.

The resulting print is characterized by its unique qualities, often showcasing expressive and spontaneous marks. Since each monotype is a one-time impression, artists are drawn to this technique for its unpredictability and the ability to experiment with different textures, colors, and techniques in each print. Monotype printing allows for a great deal of artistic freedom and creativity, making it a versatile and dynamic form of printmaking.
