About this class

Learn to create block-printed papers that you can later use for your own art and craft projects, including collage, scrap-booking, gift wrap, card-making and more.

This class has been designed around using materials and implements we all have at home so it’s really easy to take part. You don’t even need to buy special paper: we’ll use magazine pages, old envelopes or any other papers that would normally go in the recycling bin. Likewise with paint: anything water-based will do, from left-over emulsion to gouache, poster paint or acrylic. You will learn…

Teacher

Gabriela is an artist and maker. She creates prints and collages, greeting cards, jewellery and scarves with images inspired by memory, nostalgia and a love of everything vintage.

Her work is often humorous and whimsical – unless her romantic side takes over and then you enter into a fairy-tale territory of old-fashioned script, pages of books and music scores populated by chivalrous gentlemen, glamorous ladies, butterflies and rabbits. She blends a fusion of painting and digital media – acrylic, watercolour and ink with digital print – onto paper and canvas to create pictures, quirky greetings cards and a range of “art…

Thank you Gabriela for another wonderful class, we discovered all sorts of new objects to use in our art, and plenty of inspiration from other participants as well. We look forward to joining another class soon!

It was great to get the paints out and use up old food!

Instructor Gabriela is lovely. Demonstration was very good. I was glad I had some experience in the use of acrylics, design and colour. More info on this would have been helpful for a beginner, but I also realize the class was too short for more instruction. I think the class should be a min of 2 hrs to allow for thought process, creativity and drying time of pieces. I really enjoyed seeing the other participant's work and was curious of how anyone may be using the paper. Again, not enough time for discussion. Reuse of organics and paper was brilliant, and now has me looking at what I can use : save to make more paper pieces! Thanks!

My adult daughter and I absolutely loved this. We did a one and a half hour class with Gabriela and were so thrilled with our new abilities to be able to make home made wrapping up paper we spent the whole of the rest of the weekend playing with the new techniques we learnt and we are never going to buy wrapping up paper again. Results are absolutely gorgeous. And would cost a fortune to buy. Hand printed paper is us.

This was my first online class and really fun and well structured. Gabriela is a wonderful and inspiring artist. She is happy to share ideas and try new things during her class. The demonstrations were great and we had enough time to prep and practice. There was time to show our own pieces to each other. I attended two classes in her studio before and at the end of the class Gabriela showed us some of her art pieces and we could recognise patterns that we created on our own the same day. I can’t wait to attend the next online class to use my creations to make a collage. I loved this fun class and the gift wrap I created during and after the class that day.
