It's a fantastic print technique in which adults and children alike can access at their own level, everyones' artwork is different! - enjoy an afternoon / evening of 1:1 time with your child (12yrs+) - book as a unique crafty activity for a special person - come along yourself for a relaxed workshop of colour and creative freedom!

Gelliplate printing is a type of mono printing, where you use gelatin-like plates and colourful paints to create your own beautiful designs.

You will roll the paint out onto the plate, before placing stencils or objects over it and then printing onto a surface. It's fun, engrossing and makes totally unique artwork. Just watch and see what you create.
