Frottage Plant Transfer with Yoshi Nakagawa
Saturday July 8th 10am-1:30pm with Yoshi Nakagawa
Get in touch with the land through printmaking! In this workshop, we will start with a farm tour and gather plant cuttings to print. Next, we’ll identify their common and botanical names, roll on black oil-based ink on the plants with a brayer, and hand print on Japanese washi paper (fibers made from mulberry) with a spoon. Then we will watercolor on the print to make the plants come alive. Fishing by signing and writing the common and botanical names for your plant prints.
Be a naturalist artist with no experience necessary! Participants will make up to 2 final Washi prints.
Cost including materials is $95.00
As part of our commitment to inclusivity and equity we are offering BIPOC scholarships for each workshop. There is no application- only a desire to attend. Please email jennifer@ wilddreamsfarm.org to claim your spot.
