It's so much fun to make backgrounds! Fun to play with paint, ink, yarn, stencils, stamps and all kinds of papers! If you already have a gel Press Plate (Gelli Plate), bring it. If not, not to worry, there will be lots to share. Also, bring a soft rubber brayer (if you have one) a few acrylic paint colors, a few distress inks (regular or oxide) and any papers you have to play with. Copy paper, text paper, printed papers, anything but glossy! You Might want an apron for this one.
