 Mapping PlaceSpirit Papers: Mapping Place is presented by Velma Bolyard, papermaker and fiber artist based in New York's North Country

In this one-day intensive we will explore the art of the eco- or contact print, on paper. Students will learn the basics of creating prints using the flora available in their ecosystem, essentially making a map of the plants inhabiting this particular place on the east coast. Each student will prepare bundles for the dyepot, using found metals and local waters for mordanting.  

Registration is required; space is limited. Fee: $125.
