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.

Learn the basics of Cyanotype printmaking in this FREE drop in workshop

The cyanotype, or “blue-printing,” is an iron-based photo printing process that responds to UV light. By applying cyanotype chemistry onto paper and using opaque materials to block the paper, the exposed chemistry reacts to the UV rays to turn blue while the “blocked” shape remains white. Participants will create cyanotype prints on paper using found materials and expose the images using the sun’s UV rays.

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.

Learn the basics of Cyanotype printmaking in this FREE drop in workshop

The word “linocut” refers to the medium and the action of this printmaking method. “Lino”, short for linoleum, is the material in which an artist may “cut ” into to create a printable image. Using sharp tools to carve away the non printing area of the image, the remaining untouched linoleum will accept ink to then print onto paper. Linoleum and other soft materials can be used for this relief process due to its ease of carving yet resilience against wearing away.

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.
