Learn the magic of eco-printing on paper with the use of mordants and modifiers. Then explore book binding and make simple stitched books with eco-printed or plain pages, cards and frameable pictures. This is a two day class. On day one we will eco-print all the papers for our projects and on day two we will make several simple book structures: two versions of the Japanese stab binding, the star book and several versions of the pamphlet book.
