Block-Printed Cards

botanical inks

This week has been all about block-printing with natural dyes on paper!

I've been carving up little geometric printing blocks from root vegetables and apples, and using surplus berry supplies from the Autumn, with potato starch, to create food-grade printing inks.

Blackberry, red currant and black currant inks.

They make cute prints on the soft background of this locally made, recycled paper from Eco-Craft.

 

These guys are going to go to the Coexist Winter Emporium, where they will be available to buy throughout December.

 

I'm excited to be teaching this special technique in December to some private groups in Somerset and Wales - more details to come later! ;)

If you are interested in learning how to block-print with natural dye, let me know. If there's enough interest we can do some public classes in Bristol in the new year. I'm also available for group bookings and 1:1 sessions. Get in touch to find out more: hello@botanicalinks.com
