Gelatin Plate Printing Workshops with Mariana Kastrinakis

Posted on Nov 19, 2016


  • All supplies provided
  • A 3 hour workshop at Artists & Makers 2 – Wilkins Campus
  • Consider taking it with friends or family for added fun


In this class, we use home-made gelatin plates (provided, although brand-name Gelli plates are also welcome) and we use acrylic paints to roll onto the plates.  We texturize the plate surface with stamps/stencils/found objects (many are provided) and, through an iterative printing process, we create fun printed layers which result in the final art prints, called “monoprints”.

This means that each print is a unique original.

The resulting prints can be framed “as is”, made into cards or ATCs or used as an artistic element for other art projects.  Many ideas for future art and print making are shared in class.  Students take home multiple monoprints printed on a variety of papers.
