Rockland — The Farnsworth Art Museum will present a two-day workshop on gelatin plate printmaking Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 25 and 26. The program, led by Lois Anne, will take place at the Gamble Education Center, on the corner of Union and Grace streets, from 9 a.m. to noon both days.

This class is an opportunity to explore a unique approach to printmaking. The printing plates are made from food-grade gelatin and can be used for a variety of printmaking processes including monotypes, relief printing and stamping. The workshop will cover plate preparation; and introductions to various processes and exploration with water-based inks and paints, focusing on time for participants to experiment and develop their own approaches.

Anne is a painter, printmaker and poet who has maintained her studio in Rockland since 1984. Spontaneity and surprise continue to excite her about the monotype and printmaking process. For more information, fees, or to register for this program, call the Education Department at 596-0949 or visit farnsworthmuseum.org/education.
