Have you ever tried monoprinting with a gelatin plate? It’s so easy and fun. It’s a medium that is full of surprises and happy accidents. You never know what’s going to happen when you lift that piece of paper. It’s all about experimenting and letting go!
In this class we will use a gelatin printing plate to create monoprints and mixed media artwork. We will work on a series of botanical prints that we will turn into a fabulous card collection or series of frameable artwork.
In the morning we will go collect some leaves around the school or you can bring some from your own garden and press them into a book to make it easier for printing. Then we will start printing and experimenting to create our first layers using our leaves as masks.
In the afternoon we will add mixed media to our pieces with different mediums. I will also bring my sewing machine and vintage typewriter if you want to add some fun elements to your artwork.
You will leave the class with a fresh stack of homemade cards and inspiration to do a whole lot more when you get home. I can’t wait to see what you do!
