Introduction to Gelli Plate Printing (February 3rd)


With Nick Christie

This is a one day course on:
Saturday, February 3rd,
10.00 – 16.00

Gelli plates are a great way to print monotypes, or one off prints, without the need for a press. These plates have a springy surface, meaning they transfer images onto paper very effectively. 

This course will take you through the many different ways you can use Gelli plates, including using water based inks, paint and watercolours. This technique works well with painterly marks, and is a very direct and immediate way of creating prints.

You will be shown how to create layers, building up images through stencils, found objects like leaves, and images from glossy magazines. 

You will be shown how to use a Gelli plate at home, and even how to create your own plate!

All abilities welcome.
All materials provided.
