This course was a feast for the eye and a wealth of information. You can always count on Mary Beth to tune your eye, stretch your imagination, and help you make the leap from craft to art.

Very good beginner overview of gel print making. I especially liked the extra bit on making collagraphs. I have never seen anyone offer this part before thanks!

In this course Mary Beth Shaw teaches how much more you can do with gelli plates and stencils. If you have never used a gelli plate, or think you need to learn more, or think you already know everything about gelli printing then this is a course for you. Mary Beth takes gelli printing and print making to another level and you just have to see what she does with double sided tape.

So Great!

Loved this course. I've been gelli printing for a while, have taken other courses and watched a ton of youtube videos. This was by far the best learning experience.

Mary Beth's course is so comprehensive that I believe even the most experienced gel printer can learn and get new ideas. I am inspired to work in what I hope will be some free and happy experiences with my rather large collection of Gel Printing Plates--some of them still unexplored. What makes these videos so exceptional is not only Mary Beth's skill as an artist but the utter joy she brings to her teaching. She makes me smile with her genuine happiness in presenting us with her ideas and recommendations. This course is well worth the investment as I have watched all of it and revisited some parts several times.
