OPEN STUDIO TIME / Focus on Gel Plate Printing
This week you may bring your own projects as usual OR bring supplies to join in a gel plate printing session! Learn techniques of layering patterns and color, cutting your own stencils and masks (or use ready made), make stamps, and brainstorm as a group! If you have always wanted to try this to use in your altered books, ATC's or mixed media art, gather your courage, creativity and supplies and come in to the studio! Basic supply list : Gelli, Gel, or home-made gelatin plate. Fluid style paints...your favorite colors; craft paints will work. Brayer to spread paint on plate, items such as bubble wrap, combs, stencils, etc. $5 studio fee due at session.
The studio space we rent belongs to all WAL members! When the space is not used for scheduled classes or workshops, members may arrange to use it for a reasonable fee which is applied to our rent and costs. On Wednesday afternoons (and many Fridays!) we open the doors to all members to come work on projects or socialize, get inspiration and free advice, borrow our library books, etc. Once or twice a month a member may offer a focussed session, and give a demo to those who are interested in learning new skills. If you would like to share something please talk to Brenda McDougal (email@example.com) or Lauren Combs (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We ask for a nominal donation of $2 to help pay for studio expenses for open studios and $5 for a focussed session. Supplies are not provided.
ART is what we do. Come join us!
