Spring Break with Intensive One Day Workshops PRINTMAKING

RPSA is a a mandatory vaccination site and all who enter the premises are required to be fully vaccinated and provide proof thereof. This is an in-person-contact class.

Over the School Spring break ,come and explore printmaking and experience the studios at RPSA. Learn how to make monoprints using a press and explore colour. Take home a series of monoprints on Munken paper.

Monoprints are made by working directly onto a suitable surface with slow drying ink and then taking an impression onto paper by rubbing or printing. The monotype is a unique print with only one good impression can be pulled from the polypropylene plate. The images can be created either by painting it on the surface directly or by the reverse process: first covering the plate completely with an even coat of ink and then carefully rubbing this away with the fingers or with a brush to form the image. The image is transferred with the use of an etching press.

Mask wearing is recommended but optional.
Mask wearing is still mandatory in close proximity clustering – as detailed in the exclusions paragraph below.


Certain spaces with shared specialised equipment and shared resources and which also do not allow for any physical distancing would still be mandatory mask wearing for all. These include:
The Printmaking Lab
Any demonstrations/ briefings/ critiques that would have a staff and student cluster (if you can reach out and touch another individual) would be mask mandatory.
A policy of consideration is to be followed with staff and student engagement of the one-to-one sessions /or a class basis if either wishes for masks to be worn.
Respect must be shown for those whose health is compromised.
Though who are unwell with any cold of flu-like symptoms are required to stay at home and not come on campus.
As and when circumstances change, the policy will be reviewed and may change – in either direction – stricter or more relaxed. The current infection numbers continue to drop and remain low.
