Eco-printing: Prints & Patterns with Catherine Alice Michaelis (Online)
Learn how to choose and use plants to transfer natural pigments to paper in planned ways that create prints and patterns.
Students will select plants from the wild, the cultivated garden, and the kitchen to generate a diverse palette of colors, designs, and even leaf and flower stencils. In honor of Earth Day and every day, these natural techniques do not require chemicals or additives. Artist Catherine Alice Michaelis will share examples and demonstrations for desired effects. Participants will then follow steps to create their own paper and plant bundles to cook on the stovetop, later unwrapping results and sharing discoveries and successes. Eco-printing can be done indoors or outdoors, but both smell and humidity can be issues indoors, so plan ventilation accordingly. Students will receive a supply list in advance that will include recommended types of paper, suggested plants, and cooking pots/tools—all quite basic and easy to acquire.
This workshop will take place as a Zoom meeting. Instructor and participants will have cameras and micrphones on.
