Yes, you read it right, Gelli Printing! Gelli Printing is a relatively new printmaking technique that uses flexible printing plates which take colour and texture incredibly well to create exciting monoprints. The resulting prints are worthy of a place on your wall or can be developed further using mixed media - ideal for scrap booking, card making, journalling and bookbinding.
You can follow along with this workshop using purchased Gelli Printing equipment if you have it, or you can make your own Gelli Plate using this tutorial
As well as your Gelli Plate you will need:
- Water based paint – acrylic, gouache, emulsion - tester pots are great for this!
- Rubber roller (brayer)
- A selection of items for making imprints. Use your imagination and whatever you have to hand! Suggested items include; leaves, feathers, bubble wrap, button, string, lace, stencils, textured wallpaper etc.
- Black acrylic paint
- Black and white photos from a glossy magazine
- Paper to print onto. Printer paper is fine but go for 80gsm and above. You might also like to experiment with other types, texture, thickness and coloured paper and card.
The workshop is delivered over Zoom. Please make sure that you have Zoom downloaded on your laptop / PC / tablet / phone prior to booking.
