This workshop is only available to people who have attended my Gelatin Plate Monoprinting in-person workshop or online workshop; it is an extension to the approach I teach in those workshops, further exploring this deliciously beautiful and fun process.

So … are ready to take a more intentional approach to your gel plate monoprinting? In this one day workshop you will continue to print with found and organic objects but learn how to think ahead with your layers to create more planned and intentional images.

I will share new sequences to add to your own repertoire of sequences and playful approaches with this process.

We will still print with a playful approach to thoroughly enjoy the process, layering in some intentional printing. But be warned – we still work with an element of “release the attachment to the outcome” 🙂

If you haven’t printed with gel plates before, or want to learn about the layered approach I work with, with botanicals, consider attending my Gel Plate Monoprinting workshop. If you can’t make the in-person workshop, I have taken the in-person lessons online, where I share the process and more.

Learning Outcome

This workshop will build on the basics of gelatin plate printing, in particular what we covered in my Gelatin Plate Monoprinting workshop.

From that starting point – we will take a more intentional approach to the process, intentionally selecting and printing colours, and work with the intentional placement of found objects.

We’ll discuss design principles, balance and contrast – all with the view to help you take a more intentional approach to your gel plate monoprinting.

If you’re feeling adventurous – bring your own home made plate to the workshop and we will have some experimental fun with that plate too!

Inclusions

All necessary materials for this workshop are covered in your Materials Fee.

– gelatin plate and paper for printing
– paints, stencils and objects to create your printed designs
– paints, rollers and other printmaking supplies needed to prepare and print your prints
– tea and coffee, with a light morning and afternoon tea

Not Included

Everything you need for this workshop is included and provided.

What to Bring

If you’re feeling adventurous – bring your own home made plate to the workshop and we will have some experimental fun with that plate too!

Bring along any prints from your own collection that you want to replicate and/or want to work out how you created them!

Please bring your own lunch. You can pop into town to buy lunch, but it is a few minutes drive and parking can be difficult (Maleny is a popular weekend destination). Therefore I recommend you bring your lunch and maximise the time you have printing and learning in the studio.

Bring a journal or notebook for taking notes during the workshop.

Safety

​Participants are advised to wear closed in shoes, and suitable clothing or apron that you do not mind getting paint on. The paints can set permanently on fabric.

In this workshop we will print with water based acrylic paints, so wash up will use soap and water.

  • Kim’s Studio is a wonderful space to work in. I thoroughly enjoyed the day (which seemed to fly by) and the workshop. Kim was always on hand to offer advice if needed. My fellow workshop participants were a lovely group of ladies, so all in all, a fabulous day!

  • I love the Organic style Kim embraces, where every workshop, no matter how advanced the students might be from previous tutorials, there will always be a serendipitous occurrence/feel in the class, then the Magic/Wow factor happens. Knowledge of medium excellent, generous with tips, and how to improve the print whilst allowing the student their own autonomy and ideas to develop. A Creative, calm work space that Kim runs efficiently, is a place of taking the student outside their "comfort zone" stretching the old mindset, all for a better result. A studio, where WELCOME is a reality. Thank you.

  • I loved the warm welcome, the studio environment (and library), the morning/afternoon tea (Yum!), the great group of participants (all friendly and interesting), and the superb organisation... structured, inclusive and wonderfully supportive teaching with frequent reminders of critical concepts for any artist or indeed human being (nothing right or wrong, just an opportunity to learn; release the attachment to the outcome; stop overthinking and so on). The workshop built onto the introductory online gel plate printing workshop perfectly! The workshop was so well organised. I knew long before arriving that I was going to have a fabulous day... and it was... inspiring, rich in learning, totally supportive and encouraging, with wonderful co-participants. I left to drive home feeling enervated and very clear about what I wanted to accomplish next with gel printing.

  • I have been to several workshops of Kim Herringe now, and with each one I come away with so much knowledge. Kim has helped me enormously with my printing passion. Highly recommend any workshop that Kim has to offer.. You will end the day wanting more.

  • When I leave Kim’s workshops I can’t wait to practice everything new I have learned, and there is always some knew knowledge and technique to take home and experiment with. Kim is always willing to share and encourage.

  • Lots to learn beyond the basic workshop ... Definitely helped me a lot and will keep me printing more at home. Had a magnificent day.

  • Choosing to play and print with leaves and botanicals from the garden is fun and imaginative. Choosing colours to blend and print that bring added surprise is even better. A highly recommended class with Kim as an expert teacher.

  • Loved the workshop and especially liked being able to think with my brain and play according to my heart! New techniques to add to my artistic repertoire are always wonderful to have and can lead you in new areas of discovery.
