Class Description

In this workshop, you will create beautiful nature-inspired prints using a Gelli plate, brayer, paper, acrylic paint and materials from nature including leaves, stems and more. This is a fun and easy class with plenty of room for improvisation and trying new methods. The best part is that everyone’s results will be different by experimenting with color combinations and a variety of plant materials. After some practice, you will create several cards that you can later mail to special people in your life. You will also leave with many interesting papers that can be used later for collage or as distinct works of art to be framed or adhered to panel. Best of all, the instructor provides all the materials, so just bring yourself and a lunch!

All materials will be provided. A materials fee of $10 is payable to the instructor.
