Creating with a Gel Plate – Monoprinting without a press


Due to Covid, places in this class are being limited so that we can adhere to the social distancing and safety guidelines.

Gel printing plates look and feel like gelatin, but are durable, reusable and store at room temperature; they come in a range of sizes and shapes, are easy to clean with mild soap and water or baby wipes and are always ready for printing. They are used in conjunction with acrylic paints and need no more equipment than a cheap roller to apply the paint.

Artist, teacher and maker Liz Wellby will guide you through a range of gel plate techniques including layering, impressing, creating stencils and exploring masking techniques with leaves and flowers; you will leave with a range of monoprints that can be seen as outcomes in their own right or can be starting points for further processes, such as paintings or a lino cut. They can also be collaged and used to create cards, gift tags or used in creative journals and sketch pads.

This workshop will suit the creative beginner or those with some experience of different creative processes and techniques.

Tutor:  Liz Wellby.
