    Event description

    smIn this workshop we will explore mono printing using a gel plate to create unique, colourful prints.

    What will you create?

    You will create unique, colourful monoprints. Monoprints are a form of printmaking where a single print is created as opposed to other forms of printmaking where multiple prints or editions are made from the same plate. You can frame your prints as artworks for yourself or to give as gifts to others. They can also be made into one-of-a-kind cards to send to the special people in your life, or use your prints as collage materials for your artwork. No prior experience is required to enjoy this fun workshop. We will be using botanicals, stencils and other objects to create layers, shapes and texture. Let your imagination run free with colour and shape to create your own unique prints.

    What is a gel plate?

    A gel plate is a flexible reuseable printing plate that can be used to create prints without the need for an expensive printing press. They are made from non-animal based materials.

    All art materials are provided. Old clothes or an apron are recommended as we use water based ink or paint in the printing process. Bring along some leaves – including weeds – from your garden or a nearby park. Fresh leaves laid flat between the pages of a book work well.

    Light refreshments will be provided.
