If you’ve never tried printmaking with a Gelli Plate, you can take advantage of the informal instruction available. You will need a plate and a brayer, or you can borrow one — just email to let us know. (For instructions on making your own, click here.) Bring your paints, paper towels, brayer, stencils, stamps, mark makers, etc. Almost any kind of paper will work.
