How can you use multiples in printmaking to create representations in new, meaningful ways? This workshop will explore image-making and multiples in printmaking in response to the term ‘monument’.

The word monument carries multiple meanings, from memorialising a person or a moment in history, commemorating and honouring a figure of significance, to artefacts, structures and landscapes that give viewers a peak into the past, the present, or even the future. As monuments are always tied to time and place, participants will be asked to think of moments or objects that represent monuments in their personal histories and narratives. Why are these selected moments of monuments important, and can we re-consider these monuments beyond their definitions within time and place, representing these monuments in new ways in multiples through printmaking?
