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.
