Gel Plate Journey

Instructor: Sharon Robinson
Sharon Robinson

Embark on an engrossing journey through the wonderful world of gel plates and their many applications for all kinds of art projects. Prints can be free standing pieces of art, collage materials, book covers, journal pages and much more. Gel plates provide a low tech alternative to monoprinting with a press and can be both purchased and made with simple tools and materials. The options for patterns, layering and special effects are limitless, and this class will explore many of those, along with methods for making image transfers. Beware…it’s addictive!  There is also a $10.00 supply fee paid to the instructor for shared supplies.

A list of recommended supplies is available in the School Store located in room 217 of the Torpedo Factory Art Center.
