Gel plate printing is a super user friendly, kitchen table compatible printmaking technique with no need for a press. Fun, open to experimentation, great for travel, and very painterly – this is a method where artists of any experience level can discover new motifs and approaches for their art practice. At home, you can use your new skills printing on fabric, to inspire paintings or for motifs for ceramic decoration. There will also be a demo of an “invisible” collage technique where your vibrant colorful prints can become raw material for larger works on paper. We will use slow drying Golden’s Open Acrylics and simple tools like rubber brayers, rubber tipped clay shapers, Q-tips, brushes and cut paper stencils to build up layers and add complexity, texture and transparency. A supply list will be provided. Clean-up is incredibly easy with water and baby wipes. This workshop will be a shot in the arm for your art and you’ll be inspired by working in a close-knit group for an exciting, high-energy week. Take home finished prints and new and flexible skills.
