Product Description

Gel Plate Printing and Beyond 2023 is a workshop for the curious and the experienced gel plate print enthusiast.  If you’ve never used gel plates before and want to have a go – this workshop is for you. If want to expand your current experience of printing without a press – this workshop is for you too.

Carol is a printmaker and painter whose work has been exhibited in galleries across the UK. She brings her painting and printmaking together in her work. Carol helps artists in her workshops to explore the depth of possible images and styles with gel plate printing. 

What you will get from the Gel Plate Printing and Beyond 2023 workshop

  1. The focus of day one of this workshop will be gel plate techniques. We will cover the basics for beginners and recap some techniques for those attendees with some experience of gel plate printing. 
  2. Attendees will use a series of methods to master the creation of different image types and styles using acrylic paint on the plate. Carol will demonstrate different types of imprint masks and explain their use. Attendees will have ample opportunity to create prints using all of the techniques demonstrated.  
  3. Day two provides attendees with one of two options:  Carol will explain ways of using prints to create a complete piece of collage artwork. Attendees will then be able to use some of the prints they have made to create an abstract painting. Alternatively, attendees could choose to continue making more gel print plates in a supported experimentation day with Carol’s guidance.
  4. Attendees will need to bring their preferred acrylic paint colours and any specific paper they may want to try for printing. A supply of standard print papers will be available. Most tools and materials will be provided. 
  5. If you fall in love with Gel Plate printing as I did, you’ll want to get your own plate and brayers. But until you’ve discovered just how exciting this technique can be, you can use Carol’s equipment for the workshop.

Why attend Carol’s workshop?

After one day of learning Gel Plate printing, I was hooked and just had to book Carol to run a workshop in Whittlesford. Carol is knowledgeable and an excellent tutor. She explains everything clearly and makes sure everyone feels in control of their process.

This workshop is suitable for artists of all levels. To find out more about Carol, visit her website.
