What you'll do

Never printed before? Don't have a press? Worried about making a muddy mess? No problem! Discover the amazing Gelli plate - a revolutionary printing surface that allows you to create amazing layered prints, colours and textures.

During this beginner-friendly workshop, you will learn the best techniques to make colourful backgrounds and multiple layers. You'll see how to use stencils, found objects, texture tools and stamps to create innovative, interesting and one-of-a-kind artworks.

Enjoy a fun and creative time experimenting with this technique. You'll leave this workshop having produced a variety of prints that stand alone or can be developed further in mix media projects.

The best part is you can continue this creative hobby at home as you don't need a printing press or lots of expensive equipment.
