FIRST WORKSHOP: Monday, Feb 13


5:00 – 8:00 pm


Awaken your inner child in this workshop. Immerse yourself in a colorful world of creativity using an 8″x10″ Gelli Plate, paint and DIY tools. This monoprinting technique is simple and fun. It encourages exploration as great results are achieved without prior experience. Gratification is immediate and the prints are amazing!

You will create stacks and stacks of prints with multiple layers and then turn them into personal works of art by drawing and painting onto them.

In this class you will learn: How to create and use stencils and masks to bring your own imagery into your prints.

How to use found objects to create texture

How to “save” prints that don’t thrill you

How to enhance your designs with “negative” painting

I will provide a Gelli Arts plate for your use during the workshop as well as some paints, brayer, paper and a large collection of objects to use in the printing process. I’ll even bring well-used, tie-dyed aprons so you can look the part! Optional things you might wish to bring: Canvas panels, sketchbooks, fabric, collages and specialty papers to print if you wish. This technique is perfect for quilters who wish to create their own fabric designs Items to create texture or masks you would like to try – leaves, lace, stamps, stencils, etc. Water based paints: acrylics, fluid acrylics, craft paints or inks in a variety of harmonious colors that you like.

SECOND WORKSHOP: Monday, March 13


5:00 – 8:00 pm

I love to introduce this method of printmaking to artists!  It is fun, user friendly and empowering.  It does not rely on a printing press, costly supplies or chemicals.

After this workshop, you can easily begin building a resource of personal print blocks to use over and over again in your art!

I will also be teaching this method in my Image Quest Sojourn Course.

Linoleum Block Carving and Printing

(Using a “Soft Kut ” Block for easier carving)

Here’s how it Works: Bring personal images (images you are attracted to or that elicit a body sensation). These will be incorporated with more images during a guided “Intuitive Collage.” With a viewfinder, we will identify part of the collage to simplify, and transfer onto a print block. Carve the image into the block print, and there you have it!

All supplies provided/Bring personal images

Third Workshop: Monday, April 10

Introduction to Dry-Point Printmaking with Helen Wilson

5:00 – 8:00 pm

Dry Point is the most direct of the press methods. You literally scratch your image into the plate, which creates a very velvety line.

For this workshop we will be using plexi-glass plates. The advantage of this is two fold. The plates are not expensive and hold a line well for a short edition. But by far the best advantage is the ability to lay the plate over the image, making transferring your image far easier. In this 3-hour introduction you will have time to make a plate, ink it and run several prints.

The only thing you need to bring is a small 5 x 7 Image (No letters of Numbers). Everything else will be provided. Bring Art clothes this ink does not wash out.
