Gelli Printing Workshop

'geliverse' create a one-of-a-kind artwork with Gelli printing techniques



3 hours Class size 3 to 5     label $59 ($69 per guest when you book for 1+ guests, $59 for 3+ guests)

Never printed before? Don't have a press? Worried about making a muddy mess? No problem! Discover the amazing Gelli plate - a revolutionary printing surface that allows you to create amazing layered prints, colours and textures.

During this beginner-friendly workshop, "geliverse" you will learn the best techniques to make colourful backgrounds and multiple layers. You'll see how to use stencils, found objects, texture tools and stamps to create innovative, interesting and one-of-a-kind artworks.

Enjoy a fun and creative time experimenting with this technique. You'll leave this workshop having produced a variety of prints that stand alone or can be developed further in mixed media projects.

The best part is you can continue this creative hobby at home as you don't need a printing press or lots of expensive equipment.

Fran is an artist; an educator, neither overshadows, they simply entwine and enrich one another.

At a young age Fran discovered the value of creating art in her daily life. The act of art helped Fran express her identity. The process of developing an idea, especially with jewellery, seeing that idea come to completion by Fran's own hand filled her with satisfaction and accomplishment.  Fran began to see how creating art helped other aspects of my life and learning.

Fran is inspired by nature, patterns, form and texture. Each created piece portrays a slice of life, a perspective of the world in which we all live. Her mediums span painting and jewellery to collage and stitching. They all bring joy, though not everything turns out how she envisaged.

In particular Fran sees the unique design and individually handcrafted nature of bespoke jewellery as an ornamental way of extending personal self-expression. During the creative process, she is mindful that someone will be wearing the piece and it will come alive only when it finds its owner.

Fran is most comfortable in the studio classroom teaching art than in any other place or endeavour. It fills her soul to help others learn by exposing them to tools, materials and techniques of Fran's trade and then develop their skills and confidence in the creative medium.

Through support, conversation and laughter, I set a welcoming scene of free expression.

Ladybird Design Creative Studio is the culmination of creating a life around my passions of art, jewellery and teaching. It frees Fran to take a piece of silver, blank canvas or paper, turn it into a beautiful thing and share it with the world every day. Fran believes now more than ever that pursuing one’s passions makes life more colourful and vibrant, gives us pleasure and purpose, but most of all it reminds us of who we are.

Fran would love to share the joy of creating and making with you.

A wonderful workshop enjoyed by the kids, they came home with beautiful artworks and big smiles on their faces. Thanks for the great experience and we hope to see you at another.

My two teenage daughters did Fran's Gelli print course and enjoyed it thoroughly. Great instruction and materials, they got a a folder each to bring their artworks home in and Fran gave my youngest some material to use at home as she now wants to use Gelli printing in her HSC major work. They would defnitely recommend this course to anyone who is interested.

This workshop was terrific and fun. I was unfamiliar with the technique and within the first few minutes my creativity was unleashed. Fran is an amazing teacher and helps you learn with no barriers, to experiment without fear, and to feel very satisfied with the result. Great value for money! I created several cards and prints I will definitely send to friends. See the photo! I enthusiastically recommend this workshop.

Mum and I celebrated her birthday with a Geli Printing Class with Fran. It was a terrific morning full of fun and creativity. We both enjoyed it very much! Fran was very welcoming and full of encouragement as she taught us the process. If you are after a creative, fun and relaxing class I would highly recommend Fran!
