Transplant Image-Making Session Two: Printmaking and Drawing

Click here to register now for Session Two!

Take inspiration from plants and use them as your art materials! In this 3-part workshop, you will explore printmaking with plants, drawing with and from plants, and making artist books. If taken together, the sessions will build on your results from previous sessions, but each can also be taken as a stand-alone class if desired. 

Taking a deep look around the Botanic Garden grounds, participants will collect specimens and ideas. These will serve as the source material for creating images using frottage, monoprint, and drawing during the February sessions.

During the March session, you will learn to make several artist book forms, then transform your drawings and prints into books. Everyone will show off their work with a mini exhibition at the end.

Instructor: Laura Post earned an MFA from Rhode Island School of Design in Printmaking and a B.A. from Swarthmore College in Studio Art and Asian Studies. Post uses her training in Chinese language and East Asian studies to incorporate traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Western printmaking and papermaking techniques in her work. Additionally, she uses invasive plant species from different ecological regions to create sustainable paper and pulp paintings. Laura is currently on the faculty at University of Texas Arlington and lives in Fort Worth, Texas. Previously she was a Lecturer in the Foundations area at Indiana University, Bloomington. There she spearheaded a grant project to use invasive plants to make paper.
