No experience necessary.

This workshop will introduce participants to anthotypes,

a zero-carbon, plant-based printing technique while

exploring the world of plant pigments and printing.

Throughout this hands-on experience, participants will

learn about the historical roots and contemporary

resurgence of anthotypes.


Participants will produce a series of self-made, plant pigments from various plants, vegetables and flowers to coat and sensitize different materials for anthotypes exposures. Demo exposures will be created by participants during the workshop. Participants will leave with sensitized papers, plant-based inks and an understanding of the anthotype process, ready to embark on their own printing journey.
