This 6-week course will explore just some of the many uses of gel plate printing. A gel plate is a
gelatinous slab that you apply acrylic paint, spread out with a brayer, apply objects to create textures
and then laying paper on it to ‘pull’ a print. What can be done with these prints is endless. We will be
trying many different texture plates as well as everyday items to create textures, During the 6 weeks we
will be making jewelry, a tote bag, bookmarks, ornaments, prints to frame, cards, journals and accordion
books (to name a few). There is a $45 material fee to cover all supplies for the 6 weeks. Additional items
to make will be available and can be purchased from the instructor. This class is great for scrap bookers
as well as card makers. No artistic ability required.
