'Monoprinting with gelli
and gelatine plates'
Heather Hunter.

This course is fully booked but waiting list available.
Contact Liz Bryant on 01993 704345 for possible availability.

Thursday 2nd August to Saturday 4th August

A gelli plate is a thin slab of soft squidgy silicone-type material. A gelatine plate is a simple 'homemade' plate. No prior experience necessary so come and try this low-tech, non toxic form of printmaking that requires no press and uses water-based paints. You will be provided with your own permanent gelatine plate then you will create amazing paper prints with stencils, handmade tools and other found objects. Compare these to the equal but different prints that you will make with a small gelli plate. Participants will be instructed in a variety of techniques throughout. Outcome - a gelatine plate to take home plus a simple concertina book and a stack of prints for future use.
There will be a materials cost of 8 per student.
