Botanical printing or eco printing is a direct-contact printing technique. This technique uses heat to transfer pigments and tannins in leaves and flowers to paper or cloth. In this class, you will experiment with leaves and flowers on a variety of papers that could later be used for collage, cards, bookbinding, and other art projects.
Your instructor will provide the following supplies:
- Leaves and flowers from florist
- 2 tiles to take home
- Dye pot
- String and other supplies
Students are asked to bring:
- Bag lunch and/or snacks
- Various papers
- Optional: leaves and flowers from hourseplants or florist.
- Bag lunch, as the class will run over the lunch hour
Diane will be in contact with you via email with more information on types of papers etc.
