Make your own Paper
Why throw paper packaging away when it can be transformed into beautiful hand-crafted paper?
In this hands-on workshop, Zahra will show us how empty bags of flour, letters and even old receipts can be up-cycled to make new paper. We'll also experiment with adding natural colour, e.g. turmeric and more.
Saturday morning 10 - 13
Wir lassen uns vom Garten inspirieren und gestalten farbenfrohe Drucke. Dafür kombinieren wir Monotypie und Letterpress; wir zeichnen Formen, drucken Strukturen und setzen Buchstaben zu Mustern zusammen.
Die entstandenen Drucke fügen wir am Schluß zu einer Collage zusammen.
Sunday morning 10 - 13
Create postcard like prints inspired by the natural and urban surroundings of our studio. We will use re-purposed TetraPack and recycled plastics to engrave our designs directly from observation, cut and print on paper with our Intaglio press.
Saturday afternoon 14 - 17
Nature printing / Naturselbstdruck
We will collect plants from the garden, ink them and print directly on paper/ tote bags and T-shirts. A printmaking press will be set up in the garden as well as clotheslines to dry our prints outside.
Join for a 3 hour workshop and expect to get some ink on your fingers!
