When we talk of our art journey, the materials we use and the way we use them makes all the difference. One of the items we can really be creative with is paper. We can make paper, create decorative paper, use gorgeous paper in innumerable ways for myriads of projects. In this session on ‘paper’ we are going a step further. We’re not just being inspired by nature – we are going to work in tandem with it. Leaves, flowers, fruits, bark – all these and more will be our guiding lights and ‘impressionistic’ friends! Nature’s palette is truly endless. We will begin our magical journey by using petals and leaves of varied colours, shapes and textures – ones which are easily available in our neighbourhood.
Eco Printing, Leaf Printing, Botanical Printing, Eco Dyeing … it goes by many different names. In our session we will learn how to print with flowers / leaves and other simple botanicals. It is a process where the natural dye colors from leaves, flowers and other plant material are directly transferred to paper via steaming or boiling. It’s a simple and fun natural dye technique that gives truly stunning results.
What can we do with the beautiful paper we’ve created?
Here are some ideas…

I’m a multi-disciplinary artist, and love to engage with folk/tribal art from across the world – wiPth a special focus on India. I design and conduct experiential workshops, giving a contemporary bent to heritage Art n Craft. I have thoroughly enjoyed conducting in-person and online workshops for audiences in India, USA, UK, Australia, Dubai. My workshop at Amazon HQ in Seattle demonstrated the ease with which art communicates with people from different countries and ethnicities. The learning and sharing process has been unique in each workshop and the participants’ ages have varied from age 8 to 80!
