Join Nadine Mitchell and learn to make unique, one-of-a-kind collage and art papers with Gelli Plate monoprinting!
See how you can create a variety of textures and mark making in your signature colour palette using common objects, tools and stencils. From a muted palette to a lively one, see how the use of texture makes these papers leap to life. No experience necessary. Using a Gelli Plate is freeing creative play. Once you begin, it’s difficult to stop! There is a follow-up demo on August 3rd, “Art Making with Gelli Plate Collage Papers.”
With a background in Visual Merchandising + Window Display, my creative journey has been varied. My love of collage came from experimenting with several mediums over the decades. Within this genre, I have found there are wide parameters for exploration and play, overlapping with many mediums. A love of paper, mark making, contrast and texture are important elements in my work, influenced by simplicity and seeking beauty in the ordinary.
