Printing Without a Press: Gelli Plate Monotype

Kala Gallery and Classroom • 2990 San Pablo Avenue BerkeleyCA  94702 Organized by Kala Art Institute

About this event

This hands-on workshop introduces participants to making monotypes using a Gelli plate with water-soluble block inks. The Gelli printing plate, made of a gel-like substance with a sensitive surface, invites endless experimentation and reuse. The Gelli plate is perfect for use with brayers, brushes, stencils and found flat objects. The inks easily allow for layering, lifting, drawing, and other post-printing embellishments. Prints are hand pulled without the need of a press. No previous printing experience is required to have fun with the Gelli plate!
