Recently I have been teaching at The Bowery Gallery. As part of the illustration course I taught two sessions based around an article on growing herbs.

After making preparatory sketches the students experimented with monoprinting…

..using feathers, string, bubble wrap, netting and sponges to create textures. They also monoprinted by inking a surface, laying their paper over the top and drawing on the back. This creates a nice ink print on the front of the paper.

They collaged too.
