Gelli Plate Magic in Wirksworth.

Hello everybody! I'm still not as active here as I used to be, but that doesn't mean I'm not working and (the most important!) not creating. I will share some of my new art journals soon, but before I do that I would like to invite you for my next workshop at Creative Wirks. This time we are going to experiment with the Gelli Plate - one of my biggest love last months. 

Witajcie! Wciąż nie jestem tu tak aktywna jak kiedyś, ale to wcale nie oznacza, że nie pracuję i (najważniejsze!) nie tworzę. Niedługo podzielę się tu z Wami moimi nowymi pracami w art journalu, ale zanim to nastąpi pozwólcie, że zaproszę Was na mój nowy warsztat w Creative Wirks. Tym razem będziemy eksperymentować z Gelli Plate - moim ulubionym produktem od kilku miesięcy.
Ponieważ warsztat odbywa się w Anglii opis jest w języku angielskim. Tymczasem zapraszam Was na bloga Artist Trading Post, gdzie teraz możecie mnie spotkać prawie każdego dnia. Mamy tam ciekawe wyzwania, inspiracje, gości i tutoriale.  

There’s one product that you can create magic with in many different ways, a product that you can play with many, many times and the effects will always amaze you. Partly unpredictable results are one of the most exciting things about it and once you discover it you will never get enough.
Create your own magic and let yourself be lost for a few hours in mixed­media madness with the Gelli Plate. Learn about the basics and follow my instructions to create your own prints. I’ll also share some of my tips that will give you the confidence to experiment a little bit more. I will lead you through more than 20 different techniques with Gelli Plate printing.
We are going to use different tools, findings, papers, acrylic paints, chalk paints, gel medium, modeling pastes, watercolour pencils, liquid watercolours and oil pastels, stamps and stencils.
You are going to create at least 40 different backgrounds and I assure you,­ you are will be astonished with most of your creations.
And there is even more! After experimenting with all of these techniques, tools and media you’ll choose one of your backgrounds and following my instructions you will turn it to very personal finished art journal page. Each one of you is going to get a A5 sketchbook to work in,and by the end of the day you will have it full to take home with you.
Let’s complicate this simple monoprinting process with different tools and techniques that aren’t so obvious. Let’s create fast and spontaneous without too much thinking. Let’s just enjoy this multilayered process. Spend this adventurous and experimental time with us at Creative Wirks.
Come and share the magic of the Gelli Plate with us.
