Date: Saturday, June 23, 2018

Time: 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Phone: (415) 451-8119

Instructor: Liz Schiff

This hands-on workshop introduces participants to making monoprints using a Gelli plate and Speedball water soluble block inks. The Gelli printing plate is made of a gel-like substance with a sensitive surface that invites endless experimentation and reuse. Prints are hand pulled without the need of a press. No previous printing or painting experience is required to have fun with the Gelli plate!

All materials will be provided, including paper, Speedball water soluble block inks, brayers, and a 5" x 7" inch Gelli plate for each participant. As part of the materials fee, participants keep the reusable Gelli plate for use after the workshop.*

   Tuition is due by Saturday, June 16. Materials fee can be paid in cash at the workshop.
