Gelli Plate printing
March 14 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£30.00
Gelli Plate Printing at Eau Brink Studio is a great day of printing onto fabric and paper using acrylic paints and fabric medium.
The day commences at 10 am and end at 4 pm. We will stop for lunch at 12.30 till 1 pm. However you can continue with your work if you wish.
After general introductions and refreshments Anita will introduce you to Gelli plate printing. We will talk about the products and how to get the best effects using them.
Once the discussion has ended Anita will demonstrate how to use the Gelli plate starting with the basics of how to get the paint onto the plate. Which will follow with a practice onto paper.
Once your feeling confident you then will practice onto fabric. This part includes mixing your own paints with fabric medium.
After this Anita will demonstrate how to use the Gelli plates with stamps, stencils and mark making items. Once you have tried various techniques and decided which you prefer you can move onto mixing colours ready for your sampling and finishing.
Then the day is yours to play and experiment.
Gelli Plate printing is a fantastic way of transferring your designs onto paper and fabric. You can control what is going onto the surface and how many prints you make.
Refreshments included but not lunch.
