This is a two day print making workshop with professional artist Martha Ritchie. Day one will be a playful introduction to gelatin mono printing; day two, block printing. Below is a brief description of each technique. Both techniques are accessible and easily combined to create a layered work of art.

Gelatin mono printing. Using a thin sheet of gelatin as the inking surface, you will experiment and play with various objects, tools and textures to create a variety of effects, patterns and prints transferred onto paper. See example here.

Block printing. This technique involves carving out the negative space of your hand drawn design into a soft rubber block. You will then transfer your design onto paper by coating the block with ink and pressing it onto you desired surface. Peeling the block and paper apart will reveal your final product.
