What to bring

  • Yourself
  • A packed lunch (tea & biscuits provided)
  • Though it’s unlikely you will get paint on your clothes, it’s best to wear something suitable or bring an apron/ old shirt for protecting your clothes
  • Please bring a plant or 2 you would like to print. something flatish & sturdyish with a shape you like &/or good vein detail that could make an impression in paint. don’t worry if you are not able to bring any plants as I will bring extra for you to use. One of the joys of printing with plants is that it makes you look more closely at plants & notice their details!
