Makefest 2016

This year we did a Gelli Plate print making workshop at Makefest.  Gelli plates are made of gelatin and squidgy to the touch. The unique surface of the plate allows for a very detailed monoprint to be achieved with out a press.  We used acrylic paints and a variety of tools to create patterns.

There was a good turn out.  The children and their parents enjoyed this messy project.

The exhibition is about life on an Allotment.  Many different artists worked on this project, visiting allotments in Bolton.  There are paintings, prints, sculptures, textiles and mixed media pieces to be seen.  I'll take more pictures of the other work this week.
