Nature printing was first introduced in the mid-1800s to document and study the life cycle of flora. Using a modern method, we will work with flowers and leaves to create prints from plants. This is an easy, fun project that once learned, can be done any time of year, with plants that are fresh, dried, or gone-to-seed.
By mindfully layering flowers and leaves between sheets of paper and soaking them in simmering water, the plant's colors, shapes, and textures are left behind. The outcome is ethereal and unpredictable, yielding beautiful results. Use your prints as art, send them as holiday cards or stationery.
Leave with your plant prints, as well as some envelopes and sheets of paper for letter writing. You'll also receive a booklet with detailed instructions for creating prints at home. Enjoy tea + snacks, as well as a 15% discount in the store; shop before or after class.
