A Virtual Workshop!


Using your gelatin plate, acrylic paints and glossy magazine images, create graphic works of art or vibrant prints for collage or mixed media.  You will learn experimental techniques that you will be able to repeat at home after the workshop is over, including what kind of images work best for resist transfer prints; how to transfer an image to paper using a gelatin plate, as well as problem troubleshooting and next steps

Level: Beginner

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.
