2.5 hour workshop
Gel printing is a relatively new form of mono printing without a press, made possible by the invention of a mineral based reusable soft printing plate. The resulting one-off prints are richly layered and can be colourful or subtle depending on your choice. The soft sensitive surface allows detailed textures such as plants or woven fabrics to be replicated easily into your designs. You will be shown many examples of the wide ranging possibilities of Gel plate mono printing before starting your own exploration. All possibilities will be fully demonstrated so you feel confident to produce many of your own prints in this experimental workshop. Help will be given when needed to make sure you learn and are able to take away the skills necessary to continue this great form or printing in your own time. You will be given a recipe to make your own gel plate at home.
