A Virtual Workshop!

 

In this 2-day workshop, participants will be printing on fabric with the gelatin plate and acrylics. Gel printing on fabric is a bit looser than printing on paper—you can layer imagery and create interesting effects depending on the type of fabric you are using. The tighter the weave, the sharper the image. We will learn two ways to print on fabric using the gel plate. Pieces can be presented as finished art or used as part of larger textile projects.

 

All levels welcome.

 

Registration closes July 31, 2021 to allow time for students to gather/purchase their materials. With your registration you'll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, any helpful handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page "how-to" on downloading and using the Zoom video app.

 

PLEASE NOTE: All workshops will be recorded for Pyramid Atlantic's private use to better optimize our programming and share as examples for funders. You may mute your microphone or turn off your camera if you do not wish to be recorded.
