What happens in this class?

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…

Everything about no5 workshops exceeds your expectations. Armi is a lovely, friendly and welcoming teacher and wonderful artist. She is incredibly informative, generous and clear in sharing her expertise from her vast experience of printmaking technique. She has so many creative ideas and heaps of interesting materials, Stencils, flowers, & all sorts of found unexpected textures to print with. She also has a variety of papers and fabrics to print on, and she encourages you to experiment with anything you like. Clearly Armi has been teaching for years; her preparation and organization are so professional it makes the whole workshop (which could be quite chaotic and messy!) flow seamlessly. We were a very mixed group, from a professional artist to a complete beginner, and everyone produced work that they were really happy with. And then, the icing on the cake, is that all of this takes place in her stunning studio and garden, which looks ready to be photographed by architectural digest! Everything about the day was a treat! If you have a chance to work with this inspiring artist in this gorgeous space, don’t hesitate. I’ll definitely be going back!

Spent a lovely morning experimenting with gelli printing to create beautiful designs. Armi gave us lots of inspiration and carefully taught us how to make some lovely pieces to take away. Totally absorbing in a serene atmosphere. I would definitely recommend a very enjoyable course.

I attended a gelli print workshop this morning and I just wanted to say thank you to Amri who ran the work shop, I had a wonderful time. I hadn’t really done any print making since my art A level course many years ago and it was great to try my hand at a new technique and to reconnect with my creative side! Amri made the whole experience extremely relaxed and enjoyable, and her encouragement and enthusiasm really helped our group along. And I just have to say that I don’t think we could have attended a workshop in a more beautiful setting. I could have easily spent the whole day there. Fantastic.

Armi runs her Gelli Printmaking workshop in an environment that could not possibly be more inspiring. She opens up her atelier for the participants, and allows her guests to access her vast collection of most extraordinary creative printing items. Armi’s stunning garden serves as further inspiration and creative source for further printing material, and delicious home baked cakes or biscuits help the participants to stay energised. To set the scene, Armi presents interesting techniques and examples to inspire, then helps the participants to access the world of Gelli print making with creative warm up exercises, before the guests are then let loose to create with no limit to imagination. Fantastic experience!!!

This was a really fun morning held in beautiful surroundings. Armi gave us a series of demonstrations and then let us play with the paints, using our own stencils or ones from her studio stash. It was a quick and affordable introduction to gelli printmaking.

N5 workshops is an inspirational environment. All materials are laid out for you to use and the course starts with a short presentation from Armi explaining how to do gelli printing. Numbers are kept small so there is plenty of time for Armi to give everyone the time they need. Armi is very friendly and helpful and has many years of experience teaching Art. Experience varies amongst the group but you will meet like minded people who are all very interesting and enthusiastic about learning the skill. At the end of the day I was very proud to take home some lovely prints and I will definitely sign up for some more workshops. Added to this delicious refreshments served in a beautiful environment.
