Jamestown, NY – The Audubon Center & Sanctuary has the perfect opportunity for you to get your creative juices going and make some beautiful items to keep for yourself or give as gifts.
From 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon, September 27, 2014, Audubon is presenting a Leaf Printing Workshop where participants will make two leaf monoprints, one on paper and one on a scarf.
After a brief demonstration by retired fine arts teacher Sue Yauchzy of what is meant by “leaf monoprint,” the class will head outside with naturalist Jennifer Schlick to Audubon’s Ted Grisez Arboretum, a living museum containing over 60 native trees. You will learn a bit about the Audubon grounds and the trees in this gigantic garden while you collect a few fallen leaves for your project.
Back inside, Yauchzy takes over again to lead you through the process of making two projects – one on paper, and one on a scarf made from bamboo fabric that drapes beautifully.
