This workshop is an intergenerational opportunity to explore the fun, spontaneous and addictive process of printmaking with a Gelli Plate using nature's patterns! After some hands-on exploring and collecting from the forest around us, we will print and share our 'treasures' with each other. We will explore color, shape, pattern and texture using paints, pastes, stamps and stencils. There is endless capacity for experimentation, printing and admiring nature. We will end up with a gorgeous stack of monoprints using a variety of mixed media elements. Each participant will leave with a handmade journal that includes all of your printed papers. This workshop is designed for all ages, with participating adults and children enrolling as pairs. Adults must have a child with them to attend. Children must be accompanied by a participating adult.
