    Dates: 23/03/19
    Times: 11:00 - 17:00

    Learn the processes and techniques of multi-layered gel plate monoprinting in three single day workshops this winter.

    ***To avoid a booking fee and pay by card, cheque or cash, please contact dot-art Services directly on 0345 017 6660***

    With everything done by hand you will use acrylic paints, a variety of stencils (both man-made and from nature), textured surfaces, masking and sgraffito techniques (scratching/drawing patterns into the paint) to develop your own sets of prints and eventually gift tags, envelopes and printed gift bags.

    You will also learn about the process for making your own gel plates so that you can continue at home after the course.
