Explore printing with gelatine plates and acrylic inks to create a series of your own cards.

Printing from gelatine plates, known as Gelli plates, is a form of monoprinting without the need for a press. It is a quick and playful process that can produce some interesting textures and patterns in print. The process uses water-based inks and mark-making tools to create overprinted layers. 

You will come away from the workshop with a range of different cards as well as instructions on how to make your own gelatine plates at home.

  • Who is the course for?

    For those who have previous printmaking skills this will be an opportunity to learn a new and interesting technique, although no previous experience is necessary and complete beginners are very welcome to attend. An ideal workshop for those who have completed our Introduction to Printmaking course and wish to continue developing their skills.

  • Do I need to bring anything?

    All materials and equipment will be provided. If you have any of your own materials such as threads, leaves, lace, doilies etc, feel free to bring them along with you. You will also be given a set of workshop notes on making the gelatine plates.

  • Working Safely

    We have made some changes to ensure everyone feels confident and safe to take part in a workshop without fear of catching Coronavirus. Our courses are running with fewer participants to allow plenty of room for social distancing.In line with government guidance we are also requesting that students attend with a mask or face covering. We hope that being able to immerse yourself with something creative will help to restore a sense of wellbeing and hopefulness as we navigate the new normal. If you have any concerns or specific requirements regarding attending a course please feel free to get in touch with us by emailing:

Workshop and course bookings can be cancelled and refunded up until 7 days before the scheduled start date. Our workshops support the work we do as a charity, and because materials and equipment are ordered in advance, we regret that refunds cannot be offered less than 7 days before the workshop date. Please note that Eventbrite’s booking fee is non-refundable.

We can also offer the option to transfer to another course or transfer your ticket to a friend or relative in the event that you can’t attend a workshop and course.

If The Art House needs to cancel a workshop for any reason, for example due to tutor illness or if lockdown measures are put back in place your ticket will be refunded in full.
