Join Mary Maisch and the Northwoods Book Arts Guild for Gelli-Plate Printing!
June 29, 2016 from 12-4pm
The Folk School Fairbanks @ 2861 Beverley Lane, Fairbanks, AK 99709
Play with gelli plates, stencils, string, leaves, and other pattern-making materials as you cover papers with layers of acrylic painted monoprints. Your beautiful papers can be used later to make one of a kind artist books, folios, notecards, or gift boxes.
Gelli plates are a firm but flexible surface used for rolling out paints or printing inks, upon which you arrange objects, stencils, or make marks that transfer to a paper when you rub it over the plate. Learn all about it! You’ll take home a small gelli plate for continued experiments on your own, and learn how to make your own plates for future use.
*Please bring a brayer, available at Michaels and JoAnn’s.
Papers, paints, and an assortment of texture tools will be provided. You may also bring any stencils or non-sharp mark making tools you’d like to try, as well as any of your own papers or favorite acrylic paint colors.
Fee: $40 for NBG members/$60 for non-members
