Gel Plate Printing and Collage Workshop, 11th August, 10.30am - 3:30pm *Website* 

This is a new workshop I am offering and it's one I love as its playful, creative and exploratory. 

Gel plate printing is a unique, fun and creative way to create artworks. During the course of this workshop you will explore a variety of ways to use the Gel plate to create your own designs. Using inks and paint along with a range of papers, fabrics, found objects and foliage you will create a series of hand-printed decorative designs that explore texture, colour and shape.  These papers will then be used to create unique collage artworks. A frame will be supplied so that you can take home your own collage artwork to hang at home.

This year I already have some hen party and birthday workshops booked in and I'm more than happy to discuss what I could provide as part of a special celebration.
