"Leaf" it to Nature Printing at Touchstone

| -


Touchstone Center for Crafts

Guests of Nemacolin Woodlands Resort that are interested in more intensive art class offerings are encouraged to visit Touchstone Center for Crafts, located just five miles from the resort. Founded in 1972, this unique craft school has expanded to include contemporary and experimental techniques in addition to traditional and historic methods in disciplines such as blacksmithing, ceramics, glass, and more. Reserve your stay and enjoy luxurious Nemacolin lodging amenities while exploring one of Touchstone’s week-long or weekend courses taught by some of North America’s finest artists and artisans. 

For more information about Touchstone’s offerings, or to book a course, please visit touchstonecrafts.org or contact the center at 724.329.1370.

Open your eyes to a new world of wonders as you learn traditional and new techniques for directly transferring the intricate design of leaves, grasses, ferns, and grasses to paper and fabric. The traditional nature printing technique involves rolling ink or brushing paint on a natural object, placing it on a surface, and applying pressure with hands, feet, a rolling pin, or an etching press to transfer the image. New techniques are solar exposure facilitated by acrylic paint, and using jelly plates for nature monotypes. The techniques can be applied to scientific or imaginative illustrations, or used for decorative purposes. Using what you will learn in this class, you can illustrate a garden or travel log, your diary, children’s books, or poetry; print note cards; embellish your walls, clothing, or table and bed linens; or re-purpose stained cloth by printing over it. A limited scholarship specifically for this workshop is available through the Robert Little Scholarship Fund.
