Introduction to Botanical Printing

Botanical printing is a natural contact printing technique allowing the transfer of shapes and colour directly from botanical elements using heat and humidity but no synthetic colours.  Elisabeth Viguie Culshaw is a Botanical Printing artist in Glasgow, she runs a sustainable practise and both works with and teaches Eco techniques. 


In this 90 minute session she will introduce you to printing with leaves onto paper and fabric using a simple process which can be duplicated at home. You will produce small but beautiful pieces to take home to frame, transform into mixed media, or mount into cards. This is suitable for beginners. All materials provided, and you will be able to purchase from Elisabeth small quantities of the ingredients used on the day to carry on printing at home.
