Eco-Printing on Paper

Eco-Printing on Paper

Work with paper using the non-toxic process of eco-print to explore remembering, honouring, and letting go, while creating a unique accordion book or alternate book.

In the pot go tightly bound packages of materials with personal meaning, such as copies of old letters, photos, memorabilia, along with local plant material, both fresh and dried, and oxidized bits of metal. In the kitchen alchemy of eco-print, the original paper is altered or destroyed. Some essence remains, surprising new images emerge, and an integration can occur within oneself. It can be an analogy to and a ritual for the grieving process and becomes a joyous moving forward.

Celebrate the domestic rhythms of generations, manipulating paper by folding, tying, cooking, drying, ironing, stitching, collaging, refolding.

Experiment with this ecologically gentle form of printmaking while using everyday materials that come easily to hand.
