The class was so successful (examples of their art above) that I was asked to continue with a monthly 2-hour class where we concentrate on one technique and have a short demo and then time to play. Our first one was 1st May on Gelli plate printing.
Since there is a lot of free instruction available on the internet, I thought I would share some resources that might help you have a play day at home
Marieke Blokland has a free guide with basic instructions to get you started HERE.
Gelli Arts (original makers of the reusable gelli plate) have a whole YouTube channel of Free techniques HERE
plus their blog HERE
which features many great artists (tabs along the top of their blog). My favourite is Birgit Koopsen
her own YouTube channel which includes this cool tutorial where she shows how to use tags that she has used to demo techniques to create a small book.
This youtube video by Marsha Valk shows a heap of techniques in your journal in 5 1/2 minutes ♥
Grab some friends and do some experimenting - it's much more fun to laugh about the things that don't turn out quite as planned and there's lots more learning that happens with a friend or in a group. Click on the labels at the bottom of this post to find more posts where I've used a Gelli plate ♥
