Eco Printing

Eco printing is the art of printing leaves and flowers on to paper or fabric. The results can be varied and amazing, with some leaves yielding detail you may not expect!

In this brief introduction, you’ll print a variety of leaves on to pre-prepared paper, learning how to prepare the paper, using modifiers to get darker prints, and steaming to release the tannins.

The paper can be used as any paper once printed and dried; as an art print, stitched into or used to make notebooks for example.
