Leaf Printing Workshop at Audubon

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.

Participants are reminded to dress for the weather for the brief walk outside and to keep in mind that they will be using permanent inks. You are welcome to bring leaves from a favorite tree to incorporate into your art project.

Class size is limited. The fee of $35 or $30 for Friends of the Nature Center includes all materials as well as a copy of Audubon’s Arboretum guide. 

Reservations with payment are required by Friday, September 19, 2014: call (716) 569-2345 or use the on-line form by clicking through “Leaf Printing on Scarves” at http://jamestownaudubon.org.

Audubon education programs are funded with support from the Carnahan Jackson Foundation, Jessie Smith Darrah Fund, Holmberg Foundation, Hultquist Foundation, Johnson Foundation, and Lenna Foundation.

The Audubon Center & Sanctuary is at 1600 Riverside Road, one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, New York, and Warren, Pennsylvania.
