What is Gelli printing, you may ask? It is a form of mono printing that uses flexible printing plates to create textures and layers of color. These prints can be used in collages, as backgrounds for other artworks, or as stand-alone artwork.
In this workshop, Crystal will help you make sense of the versatile art of Gelli printing. Transfers, masks, stencils, masks, stamping, textures, and many more techniques will be covered. Layering will be explored using plant material and texture tools on a variety of papers. Crystal will also be covering a variety of recycled and “on the cheap” objects you can use to create great effects.
There will be demonstrations, handouts, and plenty of time to play. This workshop is for beginners as well as experienced artists. If you are interested in fun and exploration, this workshop is for you!
Once you have created an abundance of Gelli prints, you will spend part of the afternoon collaging your prints into a child's board book to create an original work of art.
All materials will be included. However, if you have your own Gelli plate, please bring it. There are extra Gelli plates available for folks who need one or if you would like to try a different size or shape. Several size and shape board books will be available to choose from unless you would like to bring your own. (I recommend a thrift store for this.)
