EXPERIENCE CREATING PLANT PRINTS
Celebrate the arrival of summer while you explore printing on paper and cloth with plants. Debra will share basics as you explore the natural world through creativity. Each season gives us a different experience of making prints. We will use plants from the Circle of Life Studio gardens and plants foraged from the wild and from the kitchen. All levels of experience are welcome.
About the Artist – Debra is a native of Milwaukee. After working with clay for over thirty years, she has shifted her focus to fiber. She has been hand papermaking for over 20 years, working with the medium in a variety of ways, and has been fortunate to study with generous teachers. She enjoys sharing art through teaching and organizing/working on collaborative community art projects and environmental installations. Her current creative practice reflects her interest in minimizing her environmental impact. Debra’s most recent creative forays have been into natural dyeing and growing her own dye plants including Japanese Indigo and eco-printing as they relate to her handmade paper.
