Instructor will provide 6x6” gel plate at cost (or you can bring your own), plus some extra acrylic paints, printing inks, stamps, stencils etc. for use during the class. Students will need to bring a soft brayer, paper, acrylic paints and/or printing inks. Supply list will be provided upon registration. Printing with a gel plate often feels like it is in the realm of magic. It is a recent addition to the artist’s toolkit and is gaining traction as an essentially painterly method that allows for multiple yet unique prints from the same plate, without a press. This workshop is suitable for those new to printing with a gel plate as well as experienced printmakers who wish to expand their skillset in an atmosphere of exploration and discovery. We will start with the fundamentals - colour blending and gradations, creating textures, using masks and stencils, the use of different viscosity paints, building a composition and registering multiple layers. We will then move on to resist/transfer printing using a laser print of your own drawings or photographs, combining multiple techniques and layers in a single-pull print and more.
