I am offering a four-class series at NAA and this is the first of the four. You can attend just this one, or any mix of the four classes.
A Gelli plate is a gelatin-based printing plate that is very easy to work with and requires limited tools and supplies. It is a fun tool to make a stack of collage papers or even monotypes suitable for framing. Beginners and experienced artists can enjoy the range of techniques available when printing with the Gelli Plate.
The focus of this class will be to experiment with mark making, resist exercises, and other methods for making patterns using the plate. We will learn about the materials and then spend some time working on our gelli plates. We will talk about what you can do with all of your gelli prints too! Students will leave with some prints as well as a good understanding of how to have fun using their Gelli Plates at home. Registered students will receive a supply list of items to bring to the workshop.
