Botanical Contact Printing

June 25 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Lisa Courtney, who displayed her work on our art wall in March, will give a presentation of her work in the field of botanical contact printing — the art of printing with fresh leaves and flowers on fabric and clothing. “I lay out plant matter on pretreated vintage linens or other natural-fiber fabric and then use steam to set the flower and leaf prints,” says Lisa. “I am always surprised by the endless variety of the results.” Lisa will describe the process, aided by video clips, beginning with the purchase of fabric through the fabric prep, the wood fired steaming process and the final step, the Reveal!

Designs available for purchase.
