What’s it all about?
Eco-print (or close-contact printing) is a process that uses leaves and other vegetable matter along with paper, silk, wool or cotton to create beautiful prints. Eco-printed materials can be worn or developed into a range of artistic expressions.
What will we cover?
In this interactive and hands on two-part workshop:
Week 1 – Learn the basic method of Eco-print and experiment with Eco-printing different materials (paper and silk). Please bring your journal to make notes, and your curiosity!
Week 2 – Take time to unravel your eco-print bundles, noticing the outcomes of your experiments and creating responses through visual art, journaling, clay work or photography.
Basic materials will be provided. You are welcome to contribute natural materials including: onion skins, purple cabbage, purple carrot, and/or eucalyptus, rose, plum, maple leaves, etc.
