GELATIN PRINTMAKING Must be 16+ to enroll (See examples here!)
Taught by North Iowa Artist Lori Biwer Stewart!
Gelatin printmaking is an easy and fun method of printmaking that can be used for fine art, scrapbooking, crafts, and so much more. If you have never done any form of printmaking before, or think you don’t have a creative bone in your body, then this is a fun and easy way to loosen up and to re-connect with your creative side. By the time you finish this workshop you will be equipped with the skills to confidently print your own monotype designs on paper or fabric.

You will be able to take these skills home and confidently print at home. The materials are inexpensive, non-toxic and clean up with water. Handouts with material recommendations will be available if you want to continue this practice at home, including recipes to make your own gelatin plates and where you can buy long-lasting ready-to-use gelatin plates.

This workshop is suitable for beginners to intermediate, all ages over 16.
