  • This workshop is part of a new 21 Acres Guest Artist Series. We are pleased to make our space available to a handful of local artists to teach their creative classes. 

    Nature’s toolkit at your fingertips! In this class, you will learn different techniques for making botanical prints, including monotype gel plate printing, hammered printing, leaf rubbings, and more to create unique art from seasonal materials.

    No matter what the season, nature has bountiful materials—we will use seasonal botanicals collected each month. Catalogue what you find in your nature sketchbook, or use botanical elements in your next mixed media piece. This fun, hands-on class is suitable for beginning and intermediate printmakers.

    All materials are provided for this class, though you are welcome to bring your own botanicals to print. This class is recommended for students ages 12 and up.

    About your teacher: Rebecca Jordan (she/him) is a speculative author and artist telling stories about the natural world and exploring alien ones. RJ first got into printmaking through block printing and was immediately hooked. As a gardener and climate writer, she dug through leaves and flowers in her back yard to see what else she could print. She now uses botanical prints regularly in her mixed media pieces. RJ is a watercolor artist, illustrator, science writer, and experimenter. In her free time she draws bugs, pets cats, and makes weird stuff. See more and connect @beccaquibbles.
