The Gelli Plate is the latest technology in monotyping or Artist’s printing. It is easy and engaging for both beginners and advanced art makers.

Students will thoroughly enjoy the process and create a pile of works that can be taken home and framed with pride, used for backgrounds in other art pieces, made into collages or glued into art journals.

Turiya is a  local Golden Artist Educator, and she will talk about the various kinds of paints that may be used on the Gelli plate and demonstrate three or four techniques that will keep the artists enthralled during our busy and exciting day.

The second in a series of workshops with Gelli Plates and monoprinting with our local Golden Artist/Educator.

In this workshop, we will be exploring some specific techniques and colour combinations that will deliver a professional looking set of prints for your wall or folio.

We will be working with seamless layering of prints and themes that bring a cohesive set of prints into a series.  The student will be learning more techniques for future use in home studio creation.

We will also spend time in the afternoon session working on fabric which can be made into cushion covers, flags, bunting and other home décor or put behind glass as an artwork.
