About the Course
A full day's workshop learning the beautiful art of Gelli Printing, which is a way of making monotype prints without a press. No previous experience is required for this day, where you will explore the delightful nature reserve at Skelton Grange for inspiration and materials, then will be guided by artist Tina Roberts to make your own original prints. The resulting prints can be used as artworks in their own right or used as painting or zendooling backgrounds, in art journals, for collage and decoupage and crafts such as card making. If used on fabric gelli printing can be used for applique and embroidery projects.
Tina Roberts is an artist and freelance educator who shares her awe and wonder for nature through her art. In this workshop Tina will be passing on her skills to others using natural materials to bring the outside in with beautiful gelli prints.
Soup and a roll will be provided on the day and during the workshop we will sustain you with tea & coffee, and some very gorgeous cake from That Old Chestnut, a friendly Leeds-based bakery that uses organic ingredients 100% free from animal products.
Skelton Grange is a beautiful, light eco-building set in a nature reserve with ponds, meadows, woodland, vegetable garden & fruit orchard. If the weather is inviting, you are very welcome to enjoy your lunch or cup of tea outdoors and wander...
