I am the owner of Saltwater Studio located in Newport, RI. My work is nature based, using seaweed and organic materials to explore my relationship with the natural world. I am co-hosting this workshop with artist Merike van Zanten, an Eco Printing/Bundle Dyeing expert. She has led many workshops instructing the process of using organic materials to impart form, color and ethereal shapes onto different substrates, like paper, fabric and leather. Merike is an accomplished printmaker and book artist and she resides in the Netherlands.

We will provide the all the materials needed for this process including the leather, wooden dowels, fabric, gloves, etc...
