Visiting Instructor: Merike Van Zanten

This workshop explores the unique process of Eco-printing on leather! Eco-printing uses the shapes, colors, and marks left by plants, leaves and flowers. Eco printing on leather requires a different approach from the paper technique, but the results are stunning. Each participants will get to explore color and pattern in this experimental approach to dyeing. This workshop is suitable for bookbinders and craft people alike.  The printed leather can be used for book covers, small bags etc. Each student will go home with a selection of printed leathers and the knowledge to continue this at home!
