Learn the basics of monotype and Gelli Plate printmaking in this FREE drop in workshop

A monotype is a method of printmaking where an artist directly applies ink to a matrix (plate) which is then transferred onto paper, resulting in a one of a kind print. Gelli Plate Printing utilizes gelatin plates which allows the artist to physically print an image by rubbing paper onto the elastic surface of the plate. Using rollers, q-tips, stencils, and other textural materials, beginners can explore the versatility of printmaking without the use of a printmaking press.

This event is open to the public on a drop in basis at any time between 1:30 and 4 PM. This activity is estimated to take 20 – 30 minutes to complete, but participants are welcome to stay as long as they like or come and go as they please. RSVP is encouraged but not required.
