Description

Gelli Printing Workshop

Tutor: Xtina Lamb.

This workshop explores a beach theme using found sea plastic and natural materials washed up on UK shores. You'll explore an interesting monoprinting process with a rubbery 'Gelli' plate, making beautiful evocative prints out of textures and shapes from beaches. Additionally there's a chance to make stencils from drawings with a digital cutter, and use them with thermofax texture screens to add another print effect or collaged layer to your work.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own beachcombed objects, and beach-related images or drawings, although there will be plenty of found objects and reference images on hand if you don't get a chance to seek these out before the workshop.

Gelli printing is a versatile method of monoprinting (where unique prints are made rather than an edition of identical prints) using a flexible rubber-like plate that holds textures really well. It’s great for nature prints, building up designs with stencils, and overlaying colour to create beautiful patterns. You can make prints very quickly, and layer them up with bright colours that pop dramatically, or subtle harmonious ones to give a wonderful depth to the images.
