VA123 - Delectable Paper & Cloth w/Gelli Plates and Screen Printing

$ 150  


Discover the delights of creating your own unique papers and fabrics with a combination of gelatin plate mono-printing and screen printing. Gelatin plate printing is a fun and easy method of mono-printing that results in surprises and delights. We will use both the traditional gelatin plate and the Gelli Plate. Create unique textures and patterns using found objects (aka-junk), stamps, stencils and resists or masks. Screen printing uses a fine mesh screen to create graphic images on fabric or paper. We will explore thermofax screen printing techniques to create beautiful layers of design. We use some of the same found objects, stencils and resists to create a one of a kind delectable cloth or to layer on top of our gelatin printed fabric.

Class supply fee of $25 covers

paints and tools, gelatin plates and screens.
