NBG STUDIO SESSION: Gelli-Plate Printing
with Mary Maisch


Saturday, September 14, 12pm – 4pm
NBG Studio
$40 members       $50 non-members
0 materials fee

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. Gelli plates, paint, Shizen, Strathmore, and Canson papers, stencils and other mark making materials will be provided.

Participants should bring the following:
