Description

This class will introduce you to the basics of printmaking from nature. You will learn how to pull delicate and detailed prints from natural objects with your own two hands.

In this class we will work with autumn leaves and Japanese papers. The class will cover how to select the right paper, roll-up an ink block, ink up natural objects and make prints by hand.  Once learned, this versatile and accessible technique can be applied to the creation of unique prints and artist’s books.

You will take home a striking set of your own prints, instructions and resource sheets and the ability to print at home using this technique!

*There will be extra leaves supplied in class in case you cannot bring any. You can store your leaves for 2 days prior to class if you wrap them in moist paper towel and gladwrap (towel then gladwrap), try to keep them flat.
