This is an in-person workshop. As of January 2023, masks are strongly encouraged but not required unless otherwise indicated. 

A trace monotype is a form of unique print made without a press. Using a plexiglass plate and water-based inks students will create prints by laying down paper on a lightly inked surface and pressing into the back of the paper with a variety of mark making tools.

The resulting one-of-a-kind prints will be used to create a pop-up accordion book. The spontaneous and playful qualities of these prints adapt well to both figurative and abstract themes and the intricate line quality can be used to add detail and text. 

>> Prerequisite: None <<

Materials to Bring: None. All tools and materials will be provided. Students can bring an idea for a theme or just see what happens when they experiment with the materials.

Date & Time: Sunday, July 2, 2023 :: 11am-5pm

Location: 375 Rhode Island St, San Francisco, CA 94103

Past Student Reviews:

"Class was fun, instructive, and inspiring."

"I’m not always willing to try new things so I really appreciated how supportive and encouraging she was. Directions were very clear for a novice like me. I’m thrilled that I took a risk."

"Our instructor, Stephanie Jucker, was thorough in her demonstration and quite personable. She conveyed the idea of the book telling a story with colors, textures and imagery - without words! Stephanie's easy going manner and easy to follow instructions made this class a real winner!  Kudos to Stephanie!!!"
