Luna Lee Ray – Saturday, Jan 29, 10am-2pm (In Person)
This workshop is an easy, fun introduction to the art of printmaking. Using a gelli plate, we will make both black and white and color monoprints, exploring a variety of ways of making textures, patterns, and simple imagery. The results can stand alone, or also make beautiful and unique collage material.
Suitable for all levels.
MATERIALS LIST :
- One 6” x 6” Gelli plate- best price/availability on Amazon
- Brayer: one Speedball deluxe 4″ soft rubber brayer – also from Amazon. Jerry’s and AC Moore SOMETIMES have these in stock.
- Palette knife
- Paper towels
- Water jar
- Any rubber stamps you might have
- Optional: Textured fabric, string, bubble wrap, etc…anything that might make an interesting texture.
There is also a $10. Materials fee for this workshop, paid in cash to the instructor. I will be providing ALL the inks for printing and plenty of paper…though if you have any papers you want to try printing on feel free to bring them.
