If you love interesting surface patterns, textures and design–this workshop is for you!

Hands-on Clay Monoprinting Workshop with Mitch Lyons explores Mitch’s unique technique of developing one-of-a-kind prints using China clay slips colored with permanent pigments. These colored slips, not ink, are brushed on, dried and rolled into the clay slab, layering color and textures on the clay “matrix” to build rich designs. The permanent pigments are used to create brilliant colors and because the clay is inert, and pigments mixed with clay are light fast, the resulting prints reveal interesting color contrasts and nuances. Work with clay to create prints in a whole new way! No clay experience required.

  • Learn how to develop innovative colored-clay surface treatments
  • Create with colored slips, using textures and layering to build the design
  • Come away from the workshop with original one-of-a-kind prints
