Gelli plate printing is a fun, versatile and captivating process that will unleash your creativity ! The plate is a gelatinous surface on to which you apply your wet medium and then lift your print; no press is required. There are limitless ways to work into the surface with stunning and often surprising results. Each print you create is totally unique, a one off. In this workshop you will be experimenting with creating A4 layered backgrounds onto which you will then apply a mono line print. You will be combining two different mono-printing processes and techniques. No previous experience is necessary. If you have attended a Gelli plate course with me previously then this will be different from any previous course with an an emphasis on creating a series of finished art pieces. Gelli plate printing is popular with Fine Artists and Crafters who develop the techniques and processes in a staggering array of creative outcomes from portrait montages to decoupage table tops. You will enjoy learning in a peaceful setting in my garden studio. The small groups ensure that you pick up the skills quickly with expert guidance. Fiona is an experienced teacher having started her 20 year career as a secondary art teacher. She has a wealth of experience and knowledge to share with you.
