Join Artist Joanna Grant, AKA Joanna Banana Design Originals, in a fun and colorful mixed media art workshop. She will show you how to use the Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate, along with ordinary supplies you have on hand. Together you will make FOUR one-of-a-kind art journals. You’ll learn fun, easy techniques that give you wonderfully complex-looking results without a lot of effort. You’ll be amazed at the materials you can use to make unique art journals for yourself or to give as gifts.
This workshop is suitable for beginners with no knowledge of working with a gelatin plate. It is also stimulating and challenging enough for those experienced in monoprinting.

Joanna Grant (aka “Joanna Banana”) is a Canadian mixed media artist who specializes in using recycled materials in her colourful, funky art. For the past 20 years, she has been reclaiming material that would otherwise end up in our landfills and turning it into one-of-a-kind artistic treasures for others to enjoy.
While some would find working with such material limiting, Joanna is fearless in experimenting and successfully incorporates wildly divergent media into her unique art. She is well-known in the mixed media art world for her bold use of colour and uplifting, hopeful themes. She draws inspiration from her love of music, nature and travel.
Joanna is a published artist and her art can be found in collections worldwide. In addition to a full time professional career, she enjoys sharing her love of mixed media and art journaling with her students in classes all over. She also enjoys sports and motorcycling. She divides her time between her desert homes in the beautiful Okanagan Valley, BC, Canada, and Sun City, Arizona.
