(Workshop) Winter Cotoneaster Nature Printing

Saturday, December 3 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

$95.00 – $105.00

In this unique mixed-media workshop, participants will be taught Nature Printing, a printmaking technique that combines botanical printing and hand coloring to create hand-pressed composition using plants, ink and aged paper. The compositions may then be painted, and all participants will leave the workshop with works of hand-crafted botanical art reminiscent of antique botanical prints.

The workshop will start with introducing participants to the rich history of nature printing, followed by a demonstration, practice, printing, tracing, and watercolor sessions. The nature printing process is unassuming and approachable, and no previous art experience, only a love of plants, is necessary to achieve rewarding results. We will work with Late Cotoneaster (Cotoneaster lacteus), a beautiful evergreen shrub native to China, but naturalized in northern California. The plant produces a heavy crop of small, bright red during the autumn and winter.
