Printing from Nature

Enjoy a hands-on experience nature printing with a gel plate. Create one-of-a-kind prints and a greeting card using seasonal leaves, grasses, and flowers. Participants will be introduced to a monotype printmaking technique that does not require a press. Experiment with ink/paint and natural stencils to create unique layered prints that are full of texture, color and form. This class is appropriate for beginners of all ages (young children should be accompanied by an adult and will share a plate with their guardian).

Students may want to bring an apron or wear clothing they won’t mind getting ink or paint on. Other optional materials to bring include a notebook and pen, and additional stencils or flat plant materials.

This program takes place in person, in the Hadwen Pavilion on the grounds of Bennington Museum. Participants are required to wear a face covering that covers the nose and mouth during the class, and to maintain a safe 6-foot distance from others to the extent possible.
