Gelli-Printing & Watercolour Collage
An Exuberant Mixed-Media Celebration of the Prairie Gardens
for artists of all abilities
Day one. Inspired by the garden, we gather and create our materials, first working collaboratively to watercolour the tissue paper that will become layers of colour and light and then individually gelli-printing directly from grasses and foliage to make evocative impressions for collage. NO drawing necessary! (Unless you want to, of course!)
Day two. With all the beautiful sheets of coloured tissue and array of botanical prints ready, today we will play and experiment with compositions and combinations, layering the tissues and prints into your personal interpretations, your visual poems and songs that capture your response to the gardens.
You can choose to work in a Seawhite Concertina Sketchbook, and/or on canvas.
Two days for £120.
All the materials for the gelli printing.
1 A5 Seawhite’s concertina sketchbook
All tissues, glues and mediums
1 small canvas
You will need to bring your own watercolours. If you want to work on a larger canvas, please bring your own.
When you enroll, I’ll send you an optional materials list of things that could personalise and enhance your artwork, but all you really need to bring is an open mind and an enthusiasm to play!
