Botanical Printing on a Gel Plate – Botanicals with Bee Shay

Synthetic gel plates have been around for a little over a decade and are a great inexpensive “press” to use to achieve painterly results with monotype prints.  We will work primarily with dried/pressed and fresh leaves in this class. We will print on paper, tissue, and fabric. Gelli Plates allow for complex multi layered prints easily learned by a beginner. The resulting prints can be framed, made into cards, books and lots of other possibilities which will be discussed and demonstrated. 

Maximum class size: 10

Bee Shay has been a folk artist and oil painter for almost thirty years, teaching theorem painting, stenciling, and faux finishes nationally since 1991. She has apprenticed under members of the Historical Society of Early American Decoration. For nearly ten years she was involved in the Stencil Artisans League, Inc. (SALI), a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching and furthering traditional American folk art. Currently, Bee is a resident of Nantucket and continues teaching nationally.

The Nantucket Historical Association preserves and interprets the history of Nantucket through its programs, collections, and properties, in order to promote the island’s significance and foster an appreciation of it among all audiences.
