Introduction to Jelly printing with University of Plymouth Students
Introducing printing from jelly and monoprints to students at University of Plymouth. This group of keen printmakers get together on a Wednesday lunchtime and have formed a society known as Plymouth University Printmakers. The society works to introduce new concepts and offer opportunities to the students such as professional practice roles and also opportunities to exhibit.
Details about this workshop
This workshop facilitated by myself introduced new PUP members to mono printing from Jelly plates. Monoprints from Jelly offer a painterly approach using masks and stencils in layers. The results are surprising and intriguing and a useful way of creating textures and abstract images which can be utilised further digitally in illustration of graphic projects. It is another approach which students can easily replicate and does not need a press to achieve.
