In this workshop participants will learn how to permanently print the images of leaves onto paper, using only the natural pigments found within each leaf. No experience with botanical printing is necessary.
We will explore different types of paper and mordants and even incorporate some other natural dyes into our works. We will experiment with various techniques of layering leaves and natural materials with paper to create beautiful, nature-inspired designs. Participants will come away from the workshop with a variety of printed papers, ranging in size from 4 x 6 to 15 x 22 inches, and the knowledge to continue exploring this art form beyond the class.
