Intro to Printing Fun with a Gel Plate

In this beginners workshop find out what a gel printing plate is and how to use it to make beautiful prints with acrylic paints. We’ll cover color mixing and additive and subtractive printing techniques using stencils, masks, stamps, and more. Monoprinting using a gel plate is simple and easy without the need for a printing press. We will explore creating textures and patterns using commercial stencils and stamps and handmade masks. Bonus: Learn how to make your own foam stamps to use on your printed papers. Whether you are a newbie or have created with a gel plate before there will be lots of time to explore the possibilities! Be prepared to become addicted to having FUN!

Bring a lunch or snack. There will be a short break midway through class. A supply kit will be provided by the instructor including a 6"x6" Gel Press printing plate and specialty printing papers. The rest of the supplies are the student's responsibility. See Supply link below.
