We will learn how to utilize stencils, stamps, and things you find just lying around. This is a fun exploration of shape, form, and color. You will learn to make your own stencils and stamps to use on your own. Gelli Plates allow for complex multi layered prints easily learned by a beginner. We will print on paper, tissue, and fabric. The resulting prints can be framed, made into cards, books and lots of other possibilities which will be discussed and demonstrated.
