Botanical Gelli and Monoprinting with Emma Taylor


Sunday 29th September | 10:00am - 2:00pm

Botanical Gelli and Monoprinting with Emma Taylor

Course outline: Botanical Gelliprint and Monoprint

Costs: £55 per workshop

We will be exploring the basic techniques of mono printing where one off unique prints are made without the use of a press. We will use inks and rollers to create layers and simple direct drawings from nature. We will also use leaves and plants to create effective frottage prints.

We will then produce spontaneous Gelli prints which are made using flexible rubber-like plate that holds textures and patterns. These are perfect for building up layers with stencils and overlapping colours to create beautiful images. We will be producing numerous prints with atmospheric textural qualities by pressing leaves and flowers into the plates.

This workshop does not require any specific artistic skills other than an open mind and a sense of play.The numerous prints will become art pieces in their own right or idea for scrapbooking and collage.

Gelli printing is addictive and once you start you wont want to stop!

This workshop is suitable for beginners or any artists interested in expanding their printmaking skills.

All materials will be included in the price as well as entry to the garden.

To secure a place please contact Emma Taylor by email emma@emmataylorprint.co.uk or phone 07540191437

Please note that the September date might be subject to change depending Autumn teaching commitments. A full refund will be made if you cannot make the change of day.
