Gelatin Print Monotype Workshop

Printmaking from a Gelatin plate is one of the easiest and most personal forms of printmaking, because it doesn’t require a press! Working with Geli plates (developed so you can skip the process of making the gelatin plate yourself) we will work with water-based printing inks or acrylic paints, with found textures and substances, as well as brushes of different kinds. No previous printmaking experience necessary. The first session will introduce gelatin plate newcomers to some basic techniques, while in the second day we’ll build on what we learned.
