Learn about a simple printing technique that doesn’t require a printing press! Gelatin printing uses food-grade gelatin to create a printing plate that will produce a one-of-a-kind print, also called a monotype. Students can experiment with multiple techniques for working with this material, from painting ink directly on its surface to using stencils, leaves, and natural objects, or items like lace or fabric.
Instructor Kim Gordon will prepare the gelatin printing plates in advance, then walk students through the process and set everyone off to create their own unique 8″x8″ prints. You may bring leaves, grasses, or flat items like lace to use though there will be plenty of materials provided. This experimental and experiential process requires no printmaking background, just a willingness to explore.
Students ages 18 and older are welcome to attend this class.
No experience required.
