March 12, 2022 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£30 – £35
Janina is a bookbinder and mixed media artist working from her garden-based studio in Reading. She loves experimenting with new materials and book structures and has been teaching bookbinding, gel plate printing and mixed media techniques for several years (including at Ardington School of Crafts). She is an exhibiting member of the Reading Guild of Artists.
Gel plate printing is a process for making monoprints pulled from a gelatine-like plate. It is a fast and very addictive process! During the day Janina will cover the basics of printing from a gel plate and will demonstrate several techniques for making prints including mark making, direct painting, stencilling, stamping and magazine image transfers. There will be lots of time to try out these techniques. There are a few examples of gelli plate printing on Janina’s Pinterest page (www.pinterest.co.uk/janinamaher/workshops-jm-gelli-printing/)
