Gelatin Plate Printing: Handmade Holiday Cards
December 15, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm EST$55.00 – $75.00
Gelatin plates offer a spontaneous and fun way to generate multi-layered, textural prints. The soft surface of the gelatin plate is ideal for playing with color, templates, mark making and found objects. In this workshop we’ll use this monoprinting technique to create seasonal cards, tags, and gifts. Gelatin printing does not require a press and can easily be done at the kitchen table. Great for all levels of experience.
