Course outline: Phototransfer onto Gelliprints
We will experience the joys of Gelliprinting to produce layered, patterned and textured backgrounds. These numerous prints which are made using layers of acrylic paints will explore the harmonious and vibrant colours of the garden around us.
I will introduce you to techniques of transferring photographic images onto the Gelliprints to create aesthetic compositions, sensitive colour combinations and beautiful pieces that are individual to you. We will use images of the flora and fauna around the Prairie gardens and I also have collection of varied themes to expand your work further.
You may wish to bring in your own photocopies of photographs to use. You could include photographs of plants or faces that are personal to you. Any images must be photocopies to transfer.
Costs: £55 per workshop
All materials (and a mount for display) will be included in the price.
