Event description

Description

Printing from gelatine plates, known as Gelli plates, is a form of monoprinting without the need for a press. It is a quick and playful process that can produce some interesting textures and patterns in print. The process uses water-based inks and mark-making tools to create overprinted layers.

You will come away from the workshop with a range of different monoprints printed onto A4 cartridge paper as well as instruction on how to make your own gelatine plates at home.

Who is the course for?
For those who have previous printmaking skills this will be an opportunity to learn a new and interesting technique, although no previous experience is necessary and complete beginners are very welcome to attend. An ideal workshop for those who have completed our Introduction to Printmaking course and wish to continue developing their skills.

Do I need to bring anything?
All materials and equipment will be provided. If you have any of your own materials such as threads, leaves, lace, doilies etc, feel free to bring them along with you.

You will also be given a set of workshop notes on making the gelatine plates.

Your Tutor
Rachel aka Bobshaped is a printmaker based in West Yorkshire. She studied engineering before achieving a degree in metalwork and jewellery. After using tools for many years ‘drawing’ with lino cutters was a natural progression into print. This lead to an interest in other types of print, she is currently enjoying screen printing and letterpress. She has taught various print techniques to both adults and children through different organisations including Wakefield Art Club and Wakefield Cathedral. Pattern, repeats, layers, colours, nature, technology, craft, packaging, architecture and process are some of the things that inform her work. Sometimes there is a bit of humour thrown in for good measure. You can contact her at rachel@bobshaped.com see examples of her work at www.bobshaped.com and follow her on twitter or Instagram as @bobshaped
