About the Event

The Gelli Plate is a tool that encourages play, but it can also be a serious fine art tool. Learn the basics of mono printing with the gel plate, but then take the processes further to create some beautiful layered art. No experience necessary! Jacqueline will guide you step-by-step as you create amazing papers loaded with layers of color and design.  We will start with stencils, but also work with creating hand made marks, and even painting directly onto the plate. Create more painterly effects using water to pickup bits of color already on the plate. Learn how to make collage papers as well as finished prints . Practice on a variety of papers and elevate your art beyond simple printing with stencils and you will become even more addicted to this fun and simple printing process. We’ll use out finished papers to make “The Book of Secret Places: on Sunday. This is a wonderfully interactive concertina structure that has endless possibilities. You will literally be building I the secret compartments!
