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 process involves applying ink or paint to a smooth, non-absorbent surface, such as a glass or metal plate. The artist then creates an image by manipulating the ink or paint on the plate using various tools, brushes, or even their fingers. Once the desired image is achieved, a sheet of paper is placed on top of the plate, and pressure is applied to transfer the ink or paint onto the paper.

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.
