Join Linda Illumanardi for a 3 day workshop beginning with gathering local leaves and printing them on a variety of papers and leather for dazzling effects.  Using pre-mordanted paper and a variety of natural modifiers and discharge blankets, students will experience the joy of printing on both a cellulose and protein material.

‪When dry, students will be guided to design a variety of unique book structures, incorporating their own ideas and adding found embellishments from nature.  Be ready to play and learn and create new and unconventional structures of your very own!
