Botanical Contact Prints on Paper Workshop with Catherine Alice Michaelis

This workshop will provide basic knowledge of botanical contact printing (also called eco-printing) on paper using locally foraged or found plant materials such as leaves and flowers. You will learn how to achieve the best possible print outcome through experimenting with a variety of plants and techniques. Working quickly on a few sheets and surveying our successes, challenges, and differences, what can we learn from each other? Process a second quick batch and see. Each participant will take home 6 - 8 papers each.

Saturday July 15, 2017  |  10am-5pm  | At an off-site (on island) location   | All materials provided, but please bring an assortment of plant material with you. You will be emailed a list of suitable plants to gather before the start of the workshop.
