What is more fun than unwrapping a birthday gift?! Discovering the process of eco-printing is like opening a gift every time a new print is revealed! Eco-printing is a process using plants, flowers, and other natural materials to create amazing colorful prints on paper or fabric. Through a process of steaming or emersion, the natural tannins in plants are printed onto the paper or fabric through pressure and contact. This produces a wide range of colors with a never-ending surprise of results – just like opening a gift! Absolutely no artistic experience is necessary to take this class – just a willingness to experiment, be surprised, and explore the bounty of nature! 

Supplies Needed to bring to class:
2-3 sheets of Arches 90lb. Hot Press Watercolor Paper (22”x30”) & optional - silk scarf from Dharma

Kit fee $20 paid to instructor at beginning of class includes:

- 2 - 3 sheets of Stathmore Printmaking Paper (22”x30” ea.), various Plant, Floral, & Organic Materials to print & dye with, Wool & Muslin Fabric, Handouts, & all materials needed to eco print.
