Colorful prints of flowers on paper


Eco-printing is an art-form which uses water, metal, and heat to transfer the natural color and shape of a plant onto paper, creating beautiful botanical prints. The group will learn about different methods of eco-printing, then head outside to collect plants from the Arboretum grounds and turn them into their own eco-printing creations.

This program has a small capacity: please don’t register unless you are very sure you can attend, and if your plans change, please use the link in your confirmation email to cancel your registration.
