Workshop Overview

This is a two-day workshop exploring nature printing using a gel plate printing process.  We will use nature to create beautiful imprints on paper. A gel plate is a wonderful way to make natural eco-prints.  We will learn ways to layer and build our natural prints with a strong emphasis on composition and design.  We will gather greenery each morning at the beginning of class or work with fresh plant materials you gather and bring with you.
