The Studios of Cocoa Beach, 165 Minutemen Causeway in downtown Cocoa Beach is hosting a “Printmaking Workshop” on Saturday June 30, from 630 to 9 pm. The class will explore a different techniques for creating prints. We will start with foam, the progress to linoleum,and gelli plates.
Making prints does not necessarily involve creating multiple copies of the same artwork. In fact. Gelli is a (non-animal derived) gelatin-based plate used to make monoprints by stenciling, layering, and other almost “magical” techniques to
create amazing artworks.
Once you learn the basics, you can use print making techniques to create abstract artwork, journal pages, greeting cards, printed fabric, and much more.The sky is the limit!
