Bookmaking and printing with recycled and natural materials. Making paper and dyes. Nursery Girasoles, Berlin
12 day workshop
At the nursery Girasoles, as part of the project ‘Färbergärten! Kulturelle Bildung und Nachhaltigkeit’, It was commissioned by the KinderKünsteZentrum in Berlin in collaboration with INA.KINDER.GARTEN gGmbH und atavus e. V./sevengardens.
The results are exhibited in the KinderKünsteZentrum until 15th May 2014.
What do you need to make a book? Paper, of course, but also a story and images. All of this is produced by the children – from scratch. First the story – a child befriends a wolf, then a bear and a fish – Los Amigos/The Friends will be the title. The next step is paper making, followed by the making of our own colours from plants and other natural materials. Finally the drawing and printing stages, using different printing techniques.
