Tuition: $120 + HST + $20 Materials Fee

In this workshop students will explore the essence of a plant by creating a botanical artwork using screen printing and embroidery techniques. In the morning, we will walk through the basics of screen printing to create a design on fabric for futher image-making. Students are encouraged to bring their own leaf or flower specimens for this purpose but there will also be a selection of items to choose from. The afternoon will be spent working with this image to create details and embellishments using simple embroidery stitches and other hand work, like beading. This workshop is designed for all skill levels.
