Eco Printing Workshop
with Kathleen Bunin
Friday, May 26, 10am-2pm
ARTSPLACE, 396 St. George St.
Annapolis Royal, NS
In this workshop you will make prints on watermedia paper with plant material.
The process is known by a few names besides eco printmaking, including boiled books or botanical printing.
You will place flowers and leaves on paper sprayed with an alum and water mixture. These sheets are then folded, stacked and tied between wooden panels, brought to a boil and simmered. Tannins in the plant react with natural colorants in the water (such as logwood, onion peels or rust) to produce your print.
MATERIALS PROVIDED FOR YOU:
Pots, boards, bricks, logwood colorant, mordants, some plants, pencils, newspaper, printmaking paper
MATERIALS TO BRING:
Leaves and flowers from home, paper for taking notes.
