Come explore magic of your own creating as you become familiar and probe the wonderful world of Gelli Arts. Guided by award-winning artist and instructor, Aleta Jacobson, you will begin your weekend with an immersive arts experience, using Gelli Arts Printing Plates to create art prints that are uniquely your own.
You will learn the ins-and-outs of using a Gelli Plate and create colorful prints on paper and fabric using stencils, feathers, string, mark-making tools, customized stamps, and hand cut masks. Each technique will be an exercise in self-discovery and risk-taking as you learn to layer objects onto your prints to form unique, expressive images that will be bound together in a handmade, fabric–bound art book of your choice. Then, Aleta will show you how to use washi tape, stickers, and ephemera to turn your book into its own work of art.
