I had such a lovely time at Armi's Lino Printing workshop. It had been a while since I had done this process and she went through everything and demonstrated each stage of the process. The facilities are great and the home made cake too!
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.
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.
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!!!
