Enjoy this playful introduction to the art of gelli plate printing with printmaker and mixed media artist Jo Hollier. Using acrylic paints create various backgrounds and build up layers of colour and texture using stencils and found materials such as lace and leaves to make negative and positive prints. Gelli printing is a quick, accessible and easy way to make simple prints that can be embellished further using mixed media or used in collage. Incorporate wax resist and stamps to push the creative possibilities. Add to your technical skill set and be surprised at the creativity unleashed. This 1-day workshop will be followed by the Make an Artist Book masterclass in Term 2.
