Experience the joy of nature printing without a press thanks to the gelli plate, a product that looks and feels like gelatin and can be used again and again! Join instructor JoAnn Migliore Campisi to create one-of-a-kind prints using leaves and flowers from Bay Preserve. You’ll also use textures, stencils, household items and acrylic paint. Once you start you won’t want to stop!
