For centuries, scientists, naturalists, and artists have preserved the ephemeral beauty of nature by printing directly from forms found in the natural world. This two For centuries, scientists, naturalists, and artists have preserved the ephemeral beauty of nature by printing directly from forms found in the natural world. This two-day workshop explores the botanical contact-printing process (eco-printing) to create images on paper with fresh and pressed plant materials. The first day, participants learn botanical contact-printing immersion techniques using dye baths on assorted paper. On the second day, the prints are used to create four non-adhesive books – a simple Jacob’s Ladder, two hybrid accordion structures, and a long-stitch binding – all filled with rich visual content.
