Image-Making

Registration for this class is now closed. We hope to see you for another Botanical Creative Arts class soon!

How do we capture a plant’s beauty and intrigue on paper? In this two-day class, the Botanic Gardens will serve as the source for material and inspiration for creating prints, and then using the prints to make books.

Participants will learn several image-making techniques–such as frottage and mono-printing– that create unique marks on paper. Next, participants will use their own creations to construct artist books through accordion folding and stab binding.

Friday, August 11 (6:00 PM-8:00 PM) and Saturday, August 12 (1:00 PM-4:00 PM) – Both included

Registration Deadline: Tuesday, August 8

$75 /Non-Member or $70 /Member
