Here is the last of JCBA's spring semester series of Eco Printing workshops with Merike Van Zanten, our current Helen M. Salzberg Artist in Residence. This final workshop explores Eco Printing on Leather.
ECO PRINTING on LEATHER
Instructor Merike Van Zanten
Saturday March 16, 2019
9 AM to 4 PM
JCBA's Hand Papermaking Lab at Historic Building T6
A workshop suitable for bookbinders and craft people alike. Eco printing on leather requires an approach different from eco printing on paper or fabric. The results are stunning. The printed leather can be used for book covers, small bags, and more. No experience necessary. Class limit: 8.

DOROTHY HAMILTON SCHOLARSHIP
One seat in this workshop is available to an FAU student for just the cost of materials ($35) thanks to funds raised in memory of Dorothy Hamilton, who loved JCBA’s monthly Real Mail Fridays letter writing socials. To be considered for this seat, you must be a current FAU student and send an email to email@example.com explaining what it would mean to you to have the opportunity to take this workshop. Applications for this opportunity will be accepted through March 2, 2019.
Instructor Merike Van Zanten is JCBA’s current Salzberg Artist in Residence. She comes to us from the Netherlands and specializes in ecoprinting, a technique of extracting color and images from plants and metals through steam. Merike’s art is wide-ranging but focuses on hand papermaking and artists’ books, as well––many incorporating found materials.
This workshop is NOT at the library, but at our satellite studios at FAU's Building T6. Registrants will receive full location details.
