Botanical Printmaking 

Classes
March 16, 2024
10:30AM-4:30PM

Explore a mixture of non-press printmaking strategies with botanical textures. Combine leaves, sea foam, dried fruits, pressed flowers, pine cones, fern fronds…and even some fabulous fakes, fabrics, and carved versions of botanicals. We’ll be printing into papers, card stocks, vellums, and some textiles for use in art projects like collage, assemblage, and the book arts. Printmaking techniques will include plexi-plate, collagraph, styrofoam block, and gelli/gelatin plate. Bring your own botanical items to add to Cristina’s vast collection, or just bring yourself for some creative exploration. All skill levels and media are welcome. All materials provided.

Instructor: Cristina Hajosy
Cristina Hajosy is a mixed media artist, art educator and designer based in Greater Boston. She is the owner of Hajosy Arts (hajosyarts.com), an art studio of photography, printmaking, book arts, and historical decorative arts, especially paper marbling and paste paper. She is the co-founder and president of New England Book Artists (newenglandbookartists.org). Her work strives to foster understanding and personal growth through book arts education and the creation of beautifully challenging and personally satisfying art. Her passion for marbling began with paper, specifically to be used in the context of bookbinding. It swiftly moved to fabrics, textiles, wood and found objects. She finds marbled patterns can be conceptualized into mixed media contexts in unique ways. Often feminist, body-related, and occasionally narrative, her marbled artworks take this traditional craft into a contemporary, often turbulent place.
