Eco Printing on Paper Jacqueline Sullivan

Eco Printing is all the rage!  As seen in several of the art periodicals, Eco printing is leaf printing on either cloth or paper. This class will feature the art of printing on paper with an assortment of leaves. Utilizing the variety of paper choices (you bring) large or small, and assorted leaves and mordants (provided) you will create the prints. Learn how to best prepare the papers for printing and what items may be added to the cooking process (think dye bath) to create various effects. Papers will be cooked in a communal roaster to create the unique, magical prints.

On the second day, we will keep the roasters going, as we use the printed papers from day one to create an interactive and collaged, artists book. (Flaps, folds, openings, etc.)    Sat Oct 21 & Sun Oct 22  10 a.m. - 4 p.m.  $305/$20 materials

Whether you just need the time, new ideas, or fresh eyes to view your work, this workshop should help generate some completed projects. This loosely-structured workshop will include beginning and ending group critiques, handouts and "ideas" examples, and uninterrupted work time with as much or as little personal attention from the instructor as you request.
