Eco Printing: Botanical Prints on Paper

June 27, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Capture leaf and flower images directly on paper using a process called eco printing. In this class, you will experiment witlr two forms of eco printing. First, you will learn how to treat paper with a mordant that helps the plant pigments bind to paper. You will arrange plants on your mordanted papers and steam them to capture nature’s beauty.

While your first batch of prints is steaming, you will make a second bundle of plants and paper that you will boil with rusty objects. The iron from the rusty objects will bind the plant pigments to the paper. You will leave witlr lots of prints that can be used for cards, framed pictures, or collages.

Mary DeLano is a fiber explorer who loves eco printing, natural dying, stitching, wool applique, and rug making. Mary enjoys sharing her passion for fiber arts with new students.  She teaches throughout New England, including at Maine Fiber College, where she also serves on the organizing committee. Watch a video at to see what fun awaits you.
