Printing with a Gelli plate is an intriguing process that results in beautiful one-of-a-kind papers with amazing colors, layers and textures. Learn the basic process of monotype printmaking, see how colors and shapes layer and interact.  You will also have the opportunity to build a 3D geometric shape from your printed papers. You will make many, many prints. It’s such an adrenaline rush to pull each print off the plate. The results are even more dramatic as you add second and third layers to a print. 

Students will play with a variety of acrylic paints, stencils, textures and mark-making tools. We can print on a to variety of papers and cloth.   You will complete ready to frame prints, and definitely will go home with a stash of fascinating unique to you papers to inspire future mixed-media works. Paint can be messy, so please dress appropriately. Supplies are included in the cost of this workshop.

Kathy Klompas is owner of Ragged Edge Printmaking Studio in Cohoes, NY.   Her favorite printmaking technique is monotype, and she loves the fast, spontaneous results she can achieve with a gelli plate.

Please note that our classes are typically held in the lower level of Arlene's. Because access to the lower level is available only by stair, please let us know if using the stairs presents any difficulty for you in advance of the class so we can make alternate arrangements. We want to make sure everyone is able to enjoy and participate in our classes.
