Gelatin printing is a form of editioning andmonoprinting. It has roots in the early part of the last century when it was dubbed the Hectograph. You’ll use gelatin plates with water based mediums. The process is like magic—simple and versatile and is equally well suited for printmakers, professional artists, and those wishing to expand their artistic vocabulary. You can paint directly, work in double reverse for a la prima work in direct observation, and use and learn of types of printmaking techniques including: stencils, selective color and multiple printings, in a series or on individual prints. The materials are non-toxic and clean up with water. Bring your imagination and be prepared to have fun and make gorgeous prints. Collage, stamping, stencils, overprinting—the possibilities are close to endless. Two day workshop gives plenty of time to learn and experiment. Permanent results, perfect for archival printmaking papers. Enrollment is limited to 8 students. $40 materials fee included.
