Monoprinting: Printmaking with Gelli Plates

Join us to learn monoprinting, a fun way to print unique, handmade designs on paper or fabric!

Monoprinting with Gelli plates involves creating original, textured prints by applying paint or ink to a soft, gelatin-like plate and pressing paper onto it to print the design. Transfer images from magazines (bring your favorites class) to incorporate found materials into your art!

Perfect for beginners, this course covers all the basics to help you start creating on your own. We’ll show you how to incorporate technology for sourcing materials and how to use found objects in your printmaking. Unleash your creativity and bring your designs to life with us!

What to bring: Bring magazines with images that you would like to collage for a print. If you don’t have any, we can provide some materials to work with.

What you’ll take home: Several paper prints of your very own design!

Whom it’s for: Anyone aged 12+ (youth 12-16 must have a guardian present).  No experience necessary.

What we’ll provide: Gelli plates, inks, and paper.
