If you’re inspired by nature, plants and botanical prints come learn a fun technique to bring some of these patterns into your home. We will explore how plants can be pressed and then used as stamps to print on paper and fabric. All pressed specimen will be provided as well as information about how to press more at home. We will start printing plants with ink on paper to create stationary or a unique piece of art. Then we will switch to fabric ink and make a plant printed dish towel. You will leave with the knowledge to create many more projects at home!
