Jelly printing after a workshop

Conversations in or on Jelly. Monoprints using a jelly matrix

I had cut some stencils for a recent workshop printing on jelly and decided that I would use them again afterwards. I liked the shapes and the circles gave me an idea.  Not exactly like speech bubbles but an aura where words may be being spoken.

Jelly Print Demonstration Plymouth University Students

I had a fun session demonstrating to Plymouth University Students and technical staff a few weeks ago.  It was a small group but with assessments going on at the moment I quite understood the group size!.  With students coming from many different courses it was interesting to see the different approaches. Sometimes its difficult for people to be confident about an approach which requires overprinting.  However, once they got going they began to see how this created a rich print with depth.  even the letterpress technician Paul got a few layers into his print.  We all enjoyed he session though and I hope they took something from it apart from the recipe!
