Explore printing with gelatine plates and acrylic inks to create a series of unique monoprints.

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 monoprints printed onto A4 cartridge paper as well as instruction 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.
