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, a reverse piano hinge structure, a multiple signature pamphlet and a 4-needle (retchōsō) Japanese book with button and thread closure.

 

*The amount you are paying today is HALF of the total workshop fee. This will be held as a non-refundable deposit and is required in order to secure registration. The remaining balance will be due the first day of the workshop. If you have any questions, please contact: bookartsprogram@utah.edu
