Botanical Gelliprint with Emma Taylor

Sussex Prairie Garden   Tutor: Emma Taylor

Dates: Thursday 15th July 2021              Times: 10am-2pm

Course outline: Botanical Gelliprint

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.

We will also experiment with transfer of magazine images which can be very effectWe will also experiment with transfer of magazine images with the Gelliplates which can be very effective and satisfying. These are great for collage and sketchbooks.

I will also be showing you how to extend your practice with Gelliprints. So many prints are created in this workshop that its always inspirational to create final pieces by drawing into them, as well as photo transfering images and creating collage canvases. T

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.

      Wonderful garden well worth a visit. Great variety of plants showing so many ways of portraying a garden layout. Must comment on the great tea and cakes selection, our dog loved the doggy ice cream!

      Beautifully planted area, in which you are encouraged to walk along paths between the plants so can be completely surrounded by foliage - a lovely effect.
