Thank you to Kerrie for all her preparation and an inspiring demonstration of a range of techniques on the gelli plates. Less is definitely not more when it comes to gelli printing, the more layers the better in most cases!

Pauline brought her in progress fabric pages from last month’s meeting on using a variety of pencils and crayons on fabric, looking amazing!
