Hand Printing from Nature

June 23 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

$75 – $80

Join Laura Bethmann, artist and author of Hand Printing From Nature, to learn about and create detailed, life-size prints of fresh garden plants in this hands-on workshop. Practiced by luminaries such as Leonardo da Vinci and Ben Franklin, we will explore the intriguing ancient art and science of nature printing using fresh botanicals. The nature-printing technique is a simple, direct-printing process that stirs our kinship with the earth and charges our creative energies. Laura will discuss some of the fascinating history of this practice and demonstrate basic techniques. No previous art experience is necessary, just bring your love of plants!

All materials are included in the class fee. We will use oil-based, water-soluble relief printing inks and a variety of papers. Laura will provide aprons (or bring your own). Many of Laura’s nature prints, nature-printed objects, and books will be displayed for inspiration.
