Botanical printing– also known as eco-printing– has a large and dedicated following. The sustainability of materials and inherent organic beauty of the imagery is deliciously appealing. But consider a new twist on beloved printing methods. This workshop explores ten additions to botanical printing on paper/fabric substrates to create a series of collages suitable for framing, stitch, or other distinctive and personal use.
Techniques include adding color or collage elements prior to printing, the use of a variety of mordants and chemical applications to enhance and shift color. Dunnewold’s unique methods for adding new and unexpected additions to the eco-printing repertoire are not for the faint hearted. It’s just too exciting!
