Create with a Gel Printing Plate

Gel printing plates are a lively and instant method for creating monoprints, with the advantage that a printing press isn’t required. Each print is unique and this highly adaptable process invites experimentation.

I will guide you through a range of gel plate techniques, including: layering, impressing, creating stencils and exploring masking techniques. You will leave with a range of prints, that can be seen as outcomes in their own right or can be starting points for further processes, such as paintings or a lino cut.

This workshop will suit the creative beginner or those with some experience of different creative processes and techniques.

Saturday 21st September, 10 – 4pm, £65, including: most materials and refreshments; just bring your lunch.
