Gelatin Plate Monoprinting

Monoprinting is a spontaneous and somewhat unpredictable process that can be easily achieved at home, without specialized equipment. The gelatin plate is a soft and malleable surface that can hold the detailed impressions that you make on it with brushes, botanical materials, stencils, masks and stamps. In my gelatin plate monoprinting workshop you will learn how to make your own gelatin plate and use it to create unique, layered artworks that can be enjoyed alone or used as backgrounds for multimedia, card creation or cut into collages. 

The next Gelli Printing Workshop will be held at the Lake Bolac Community and Business Centre on Sunday 11th December (2pm – 4.30pm) and will focus on festive printing to create gift tags, gift boxes and Christmas cards. You will be provided with templates to make your own christmas crakers, decorated with paper you have printed yourself. All materials and equipment will be provided and you will go home with a variety of printed papers. Please use the contact form here to make a booking.

Linocut Workshop at Merri View Gallery

On Sunday 3rd July, 12 participants came along to my Beginner’s Linocut Workshop at the Merri View Gallery, hosted by Warrnambool and District Artist’s Society. We had a busy day (9.00am to 3.00pm) learning about the tools and materials, the design process, carving the linoleum block and printing on paper. I was pleased that everyone had the opportunity to carve at least one small block and produce one or more printed cards.

As there were people unable to attend on that date and several on the waiting list, WADAS are pleased to host another workshop on Sunday 18th September. Jenny Adams is taking bookings, but we are limiting it to ten places this time, to give us a bit more elbow room! All linocut tools and equipment supplied, except bring your own apron, lunch and drawing materials.
