Explorer Series - Nature Printing with Fish (gyotaku) and Plants

Nature Printing with Fish (gyotaku) and Plants Led by Chris and Christy Dewees “Every type of fish is unique and requires a different approach. I like to emphasize the structure and movement of the fish.”~ Chris Dewees “I don’t touch fish, so I was delighted to discover that the method worked for printing flowers and plants as well.” ~ Christy Dewees Chris Dewees has focused on Japanese fish printing (gyotaku) since 1968, and is a co-founder of the Nature Printing Society. He has gained worldwide recognition for his talents with shows all over the world, and enjoys teaching others this ancient art. His modern take on the art form blends his knowledge of fisheries and ecology to document the life histories of fish species. Christy Dewees has a degree in botanical illustration and is also a nature printer who enjoys working with plant prints on fabric.

Art is a creative way for Chris and Christy to share their passion and knowledge of nature. In this workshop attendees will learn how to make prints with a method where ink is applied directly to the subject. No previous experience is necessary. All materials and lunch are included. Tickets $75 per person available at http://yolobasin.org/explorer/ .
