LEAF MONOTYPES
Eco-prints on Paper

In this workshop we’ll create a few sets of original nature prints using a variety of methods. We’ll start off with eco printing leaves on cotton papers. This process includes dipping and soaking leaves with tannins before arranging, bundling and steaming them on paper to create permanent prints. While they steam and set, we’ll experiment with even more leaves, inks, paints, stencils, and other fun printing materials and tools to create layered monotypes, or one of a kind prints.

Our Garden continues to follow CDC recommendations and state guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19. Properly worn masks are strongly encouraged for indoor class participants regardless of vaccination status. The Garden reserves the right to implement additional safety measures. Any updates will be communicated prior to class, if possible.

About the Instructor

Dana DuMont works with varied media including digital images, collage, drawings, fibers, glass, and clay, and recently stepped back from full time teaching to expand her own studio practice. Elements of and connections to the natural world inspire her pieces and she regularly incorporates recycled, donated and found items into her works. She exhibits and sells her work regionally, her paint restoration of the RCA “Nipper” window is on view at The Smithsonian’s Museum of American History, and she continues her teaching, which like her artistic process, encourages creative risk-taking, perseverance, humor, reflection, and environmental stewardship. DuMont holds BFAs in Craft Materials and Art Education from Virginia Commonwealth University and a Master’s of Humanities with a concentration in art history from the University of Richmond. An avid traveler, she considers her ongoing art journeying to be her continuing studies program. More of her work can be seen here and at Studio DuMont.
