Botanical Printing Processes

Observed in nature, botanical printing processes have been emulated since at least Egyptian times to create prints and in recent years have become popular as a folk art, spread online. Essentially plant material is printed directly onto cloth or paper drawing the dyes from leaves and flowers.

In 2019 I had my first experience of botanical printing at a class with Maggie Pearson in Sefton Park Palm House and very quickly became obsessed with making prints using plant materials from my garden,family, friends and the surrounding area. Every time I made prints I discovered something which led to a new technique to try. Everywhere I looked I found different leaves and flowers to print.
