Gelliprinting - a 5 part course at Clevedon Craft Centre

£150.00 / Coming Soon

This 5 part course will take you through all the basics of Gelliprinting (monoprinting on a Gelli plate without a press). It's suitable for complete beginners or those wishing to develop their Gelliprinting skills.

You will learn:
- inking and cleaning the plate
- set up, including a simple registration system
- silhouette and ghost prints and how/when to use each
- how to create textures, including using resists
- mark making from found materials
- making home made and using bought stencils
- elements of composition including contrast and value differences
- the benefits of working with limited palettes
- collaging prints/ parts of prints together
- ways to present your finished prints

Working with examples from some of my favourite artists, including Rex Ray and Louise Bourgeois, we'll learn to study and then imitate their work, innovate our own variations and then invent our own works.
You will take home finished prints at the end of each part of the course.
At the end of the course you will have the knowledge to be able to set yourself up at home to continue your own Gelliprinting journey should you wish to.
I'll also recommend Gelliprint artists you can look up to enhance your study.

Gel plate printing is fast and fun and it's easy to get hooked!

5 Fridays in a row from 10 - 1pm
Friday 8th November, 15th November, 22nd November, 29th November, and the final part is Friday 6th December.

How much?
£150 per person which includes 15 hours of tuition and all materials you will use in the course.
The max group size is 10 so you'll have lots of chance to get help and ask questions in a relaxed informal setting.

Please wear old clothes or bring an apron.
