Family workshop: Gelli printingExperiment with using a gelli plate to print textures from leaves and grasses found in Knole Park. Learn how to make positive and negative texture prints, and how to layer different colours. As you experiment with the techniques, you'll build up a collection of colourful prints. At the end of the workshop, frame your favourite creation to take home with you and proudly display. This workshop is aimed at children aged 12+. For safety reasons, all under 18s must be accompanied by an adult throughout the workshop. Accompanying adults are welcome to join in with the printing!
