These are some of the artwork my students did with Thermofax silkscreen and Monoprinting with Gelli plates. I had 4 classes with a total of over 80 quilters! Everyone had such a good time. Thanks to my husband George for helping and washing all the silkscreens and Gelli plates 4 times! Also thanks to Nancy of Gelli Arts for loaning some Gelli plates for the classes!
