creativeplaysession1-gelliprinting-march-23_17-700wCourse outline: Led by Anne Marie Desaulniers, the Creative Play Series is an exploratory series, focused on out-of-the-box thinking, creative techniques, exciting materials, and mini-projects. A play box full of hands-on, mixed media, beading, textile, jewellery, and stitching techniques will be shared (but not all in the same session). Not intended as a class, or workshop, but rather an open sharing of information, and technique taster, for those with curious minds! The focus will be on encouraging participants to take their work to the next level!

Session 1 will focus on mono printing on paper, using a commercial Gelli Plate. You will receive links to make your own, homemade plates. You’ll also get lots of ideas on how to use prints for jewellery purposes.

Skill level: All levels

Prerequisite: N/A

Technique: Session 1 will focus on mono printing on paper.

Bring to class: Enthusiasm, a smile, and a sense of humour. Notebook, pen, pencil, ruler, scissors. Any other supply requirements, will be available at BeadFX, prior to the session.
