Saturday August 15 from 10 am to 6 pm 

Enjoy nature and make a good impression !

Flowers, leaves, herbs, watercolour paper and a hammer… That’s all you need to create original images in a very natural spirit. Run through the woods and meadows, cross the fields and turn your harvest into beautiful prints.

  1. Use the plants as soon as you pick them. You can use whole flowers or only inflorescences or petals.
  2. Place a sheet of 300g watercolour paper on a board or hard surface. Place the various plant elements on top and cover with paper towels.
  3. Tap the protective paper with a hammer to break up the plant pigments and print their imprints on the watercolour paper.
  4. Gently remove the plant residues with tweezers and enjoy your print !
  5. You can, if necessary, iron the prints on the reverse side with an iron set to cotton.
