Printing from gelatine plates, known as Gelli plates, is a form of monoprinting without the need for a press. It is quick and playful and can produce some interesting textures and patterns in prints. The process uses water-based inks and mark-making tools to create overprinted layers. Gelatine plates are easy to make and you’ll also be given instructions on how to make the plates at home.
You will come away from the workshop with a range of different monoprints from the gelatine plates, printed onto A4 cartridge paper.
