Come explore gel plate printmaking in this intensive one day workshop. A great alternative to traditional monotype, these soft flexible plates (or homemade gelatin plates) will give you immediate results using natural materials and stencils to create unique and colorful prints. This workshop will cover the basics as well many tips and tricks.  A full assortment of Akua inks will be provided as well as a few sizes of plates will be available to be used during the class.
