About the Event
Gel printmaking is a new and exciting way of creating mono-prints based on an old technology - the hectograph. It involves applying paint to a printing plate made of gel. Textures and depth can be created by applying a variety of tool collected from the recycling and garbage bins, to the paint. Paper is then placed on top of the paint and a one-of-a-kind print is pulled. The end product can be a picture, a card, a bookmark, used for collage, etc. BEWARE: this activity is known to be addictive due to the endless possibilities of unique results.
