What’s a Gelli Plate? 
The Gel Printing Plate looks and feels like gelatin, but is 
durable, reusable and stores at room temperature. It's easy to clean and always ready for printing. Monoprinting on a Gelli plate is simple and fun. The gratification is immediate, and the prints are too cool! 
It comes in a variety of sizes and shapes. You can find more about them on website with 

introductory videos. 

Members of this class must provide their own gelli plate and brayer. I can get you the best price at I highly recommend 
an 8 x 10 plate but you can also have a lot of fun with the 6 x 6 plate.
3” brayers run about $10 (soft rubber preferred).
Contact Ginny at to register and for a full supply list.
