Get creative, get messy, have fun! In this four-day art extravangaza, you’ll get to dive in to Gelli plate printmaking in the mornings, and then create functional ceramic art pieces in the afternoons.
Gelli plate printing is becoming more popular in the printmaking world as a fun way to explore layers and lots of color. This accessible form of printmaking uses a gelatin plate and stencils to create interesting shapes. Each day, you will experiment with making different prints, and in our final class, we will create an accordion book to showcase the various skills you’ve learned. All materials included.
In the afternoons, you’ll get to try your hand at handbuilding as you create a key/jewellery dish, a mug, and a planter. With each project, you’ll get to experiment with adding texture and colour. On the fourth day, you’ll have a chance to create a second version of your favourite project or finish up preparing your masterpieces for glazing and firing. Clay, slip/underglaze, glazing, and firing included.
We will take a 60-minute lunch break between printmaking and clay work. Water, coffee, tea, and light refreshments will be provided.
– a mask for moving through common spaces (if you are able to wear a mask)
– a bag lunch (if you plan to stick around during the lunch break)
– an apron, or clothes that can get paint or clay on them
These are in person workshops. We take the health and safety of anyone entering the space seriously. We follow COVID 19 procedures set out by the BC provincial health authority. Should you have any questions around this please contact Shannon at firstname.lastname@example.org
