Workshops on Governors Island

PLANT PRINTMAKING WORKSHOP
Saturday, July 7, 1-3pm
with Autumn Kioti

Meet at Nolan Park house #17. Autumn's workshop employs a combination of DIY kitchen printing and studio techniques, along with elements of collage, illustration, and monoprinting, to inspire students of all ages to embrace a new perspective on the age old process of botanical printmaking.  Attendees will be encouraged to explore non-traditional combinations of materials, to bring pressed plants and scrap paper from home, use materials provided at the workshop, or a combination of both.  Methods taught are easily translated into techniques that can be duplicated in your own home without the use of special equipment. No registration necessary. No limit. Free
