Flower Printmaking: Mother’s Day Cards

May 4 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Flower Printmaking - Mother’s Day Cards | Sherman Library and Gardens

Two cards, two techniques! You will be using seasonal flowers to make these two original cards that can be used for Mother’s Day or any other event that you want to recognize!  You will first learn how to make your own botanical prints by using a mallet to lightly “pound” flowers and leaves to release their natural dyes onto paper.

You will then learn the two techniques to create your cards. One will be made using the printing technique on hand-made paper, which will then be attached to your card. The second will be made by creating prints that will be torn and then used in a collage technique to create your design. Your finished cards will be miniature works of art, and they could be a wonderful gift for your mother, a special loved one, or yourself!

You will receive all the materials that you need to make your cards.
