Gelli Art Printing with Sinead Lawson


The gel plate is an extremely versatile piece of equipment used for creating monoprints with beautiful colours, layers and textures. It is light and easy to take with you wherever you go and offers so many opportunities for play and experimentation.

This class provides an introduction to the gel plate and a variety of ways to use it with every day items like leaves, string, bubble wrap and feathers to create beautiful unique prints that can be used in a variety of ways for greeting cards, framed prints, collage, gift wrap and gift tags.

Sinéad is a mixed media artist who enjoys using the gel plate to create one of a kind prints and then exploring their interaction with other techniques like embroidery and bookmaking. Sinead’s gel print work is featured in the book ‘Gelli Arts Printing Guide’ by Suzanne McNeill.

The Perfect Day

I was delighted to be a part of Sinead's Gelli Art class. It was a ton of fun and really accessible for someone without much printing experience. I'd return and do it again but was very pleased to buy some new materials to bring back home for the moment.

The materials included were amazing- beautiful papers from the shop, a brayer/roller and gelli plate, gorgeous images and stencils, and Sinead's amazing book of pressed flowers and leaves. A huge range of paper textures and colors, and vibrant acrylics gave us all the flexibility you could want. I must have made at least 15 items.

Sometimes a new art form can be complex, expensive, or just intimidating. But Sinead's gelli art class really made us feel instantly able to create. Cards, stationary, prints... we did it all. The range of forms and techniques covered were really impressive. Sinead offered a pretty amazing balance of time for experimentation and techniques covered: textures, stencilling, blocking, blending paints, layering prints, pulling images, ghost prints. We also learned how to take these techniques home and add fabric and other surface painting to our skills. A great teacher, a great setting... the perfect day.

Unique and fun

Sinead was a fabulous teacher

I attended a brilliant and informative Gelli Art printing workshop with Sinead Lawson. Sinead was a fabulous teacher.

Warm, friendly atmosphere in Liberties Papers shop. Sheila and Paul are lovely people and excellent hosts and they have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the array of beautiful papers and products they sell.

Would highly recommend a visit to this little oasis.
