Monoprinting with Gelli Plate Printmaking
November 23 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Have you ever wanted to try your hand at printmaking but been intimidated by the equipment needed for some types, like screenprinting? That’s where monoprinting— making a one-off print—with Gelli Plates comes in.
Create beautiful monotypes without a press! In this quick, technique-based class, you’ll make fine-art quality prints with inexpensive materials. You’ll learn many techniques: how to apply bands of color and texture, develop your images with stencils, transfers, stamping and drawing, collage layering and finish your prints with glazing and sink work. Warning: Gelli Plate Printmaking is addictive!
In this fun workshop you will expand your creativity – the possibilities of making your own decorative papers and printing on different surfaces is so extensive!
Great for beginners and/or artists that want to play and have a creative afternoon together.
