A 2-Day Online Workshop!

Tuesdays, June 7 and 14, 6pm-8pm ET via Zoom


About this Workshop:

In this 2-day workshop, participants will be printing on fabric with the gelatin plate and acrylics. Gel printing on fabric is a bit looser than printing on paper—you can layer imagery and create interesting effects depending on the type of fabric you are using. The tighter the weave, the sharper the image. We will learn two ways to print on fabric using the gel plate. Pieces can be presented as finished art or used as part of larger textile projects.

Level: All levels welcome – no prior experience required.

Registration extended to June 2, 2022. With your registration you’ll receive the full materials list (with helpful links) to purchase your items, any helpful handouts about the process, as well as a quick 1-page “how-to” on downloading and using the Zoom video app.

YOUR INSTRUCTOR:

A native of Washington, D.C., Clare Winslow studied Fine Art and graphic design and narrowed her scope of interest to screenprinting, a medium which allows her to synthesize a broad range of artistic interests: drawing, photography, digital imaging, graphic design and painting. Clare’s prints have been included in group shows at the Washington Printmaker’s Gallery, the Corcoran Museum of Art, and Civilian Art Projects in Washington, D.C.  Clare has lived in Tokyo, Washington, and Los Angeles, and currently resides in Bethesda, Maryland.
