Gelatin Printing Workshop at the New York Botanical Garden

  • New York Botanical Garden 2950 Southern Boulevard The Bronx, NY, 10458 United States (map)

Lillian Melcher, whose breathtaking illustrations grace the pages of The Adventures of Alexander von Humboldt, discusses how the explorers of old recorded the botanical specimens they found while fording river rapids and climbing mountain tops! Then you will experiment with color and layering using a similar, rewarding technique to make extremely detailed impressions of leaves and flowers from the Garden. Go home with an exquisite record of your visit to NYBG.
