This bit size class will be hosted by Bev Evans, a Liverpool based Artist and friend of Clever Hands Studio. Monotype or gel printing is a creative and expressive art technique which is fairly easy to master with guidance. 
Paint is applied with a roller to a rubbery flat surface, then stencils and texture techniques produce patterns before paper is applied over the paint to make a print. A gel or gelli plate is a soft surface a little like silicon, available in lots of different sizes. Bev makes her own plates from gelatine. 
Printmaking can often require an expensive print press and oily inks. Here with the gel plate, we use regular water based acrylic inks and simple easily found materials.

All materials and equipment will be provided for you to have a go and see if you enjoy mono printing. Bev shows her own work, gives a demonstration before you have a go yourself! Use any of Bev’s paint colours or mix your own. A great introduction to the printing family, make detailed prints by building up layers using stencils, leaves and image transfer. Suitable age 11 upwards, under 16 please supervised with an adult. Take home prints on paper and an option to buy your kit should you wish to continue printing at home.
