    Book, signed, and leafprint workshop

    Learn to make a chlorophyll print using a photograph of your choice. I am offering two workshops, one at my studio in Salem, VA and one at the Arts of the Book Center, Charlottesville, Virginia. The dates in June 2019 will be selected for the availability of the participants. I will provide all materials for the one-day workshops. With optimal weather you will be able to take home a finished leafprint with your chosen image in a violet, hosta, or hydrangea leaf. In any event, you will know how to develop a print, press and dry it, and affix it to fine art paper for framing. I will also demonstrate the more complex process of casting a leaf in resin for framing.
