First Proof Press, BMAC present monotype workshop

BRATTLEBORO — Daniel Chiaccio demonstrates the basics of monotype printmaking at First Proof Press on Saturday, Feb. 12, at 2 p.m. This event is presented in partnership with the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center (BMAC).

Monotype printmaking is an ideal medium for those looking to create unique, colorful prints quickly. Students will be guided through the inking process, printing press operation, stencil creation, mark making, and more. All materials will be provided.

The workshop will take place at First Proof Press, a community-based studio on Main Street in Brattleboro dedicated to the many forms of fine art printmaking. First Proof Press is a “green” printmaking facility, eliminating the need for harsh chemicals. The monotype printmaking process is safe and nontoxic.
