UCSC Arboretum Nature Craft Workshop: Nature's Prints Workshop

Join us in experiencing the beauty of the Arboretum’s botanical offerings through printmaking. We will create prints inspired by nature, carving our own traditional blocks, and relief printing with flowers and leaves. Prints will be made on a variety of art paper that will be provided, as well as any materials you choose to bring, such as fabric. Each participant will take home their print creations and their own carved block for future printmaking.

Sarah Ory is a certified California Naturalist with experience in science illustration, printmaking, watercolor and oil painting. She draws inspiration from the natural world and is excited to share techniques in relief printmaking with the Santa Cruz community.
