Explore the exciting process of gelatine plate monoprinting with a pop art theme on this one day workshop.
You will learn how to use water based inks, stencils, magazine images and textures to create your own pop art style prints onto paper. Printing using gelatine plates is a fun, colourful and instant way to create monoprints and ideal to continue at home without needing a press! You’ll come away with a series of layered monoprints using the gelatine plate and various techniques.
Who is the course for?
The workshop would suit beginners and those with some previous printmaking experience. Those with an understanding of printmaking can use the workshop to learn a new skill to add to their practice.
Do I need to bring anything?
All materials are included. Feel free to bring some magazine images or textures to use if you have an idea in mind.
Bobshaped is an artist and facilitator based in West Yorkshire. Before making work as a printmaker she studied engineering and metalwork and jewellery. After using tools for many years ‘drawing’ with lino cutters was a natural progression into print. This lead to an interest in other types of print, she is currently enjoying screen printing and letterpress.
Pattern, repeats, layers, colours, nature, technology, craft, packaging, architecture and process are some of the things that inform her work. Sometimes there is a bit of humour thrown in for good measure.
