Mixed media artist Lesley Dearn will introduce this quick, playful method of mono-printing. Suitable for complete beginners and experienced artists alike.
Gel Printing is a wonderful way to create unique images without the need for traditional drawing or print-making skills.
Create beautiful images, generate ideas, experiment with colour and explore a different way of working in this relaxed workshop.
Using a professional gel plate and acrylic paints, you’ll learn several different techniques including layering, direct mark-making and masking. You will learn how to build delicate images using leaves and feathers, create abstract designs and evoke subtle landscapes.
During the day we will cover the main Gel Printing techniques, as well as elements of colour and composition. You’ll have ample time to experiment during the day, creating dozens of prints, as you explore colour, texture, and design while creating your own very personal and unique pieces.
Gel plates are very sensitive and easily pick up pattern and texture. If you have any favourite leaves (no thorns), flatish flowers, feathers, lace etc that you fancy trying please bring them along.
