Adventure into this unique use of fresh flowers and leaves with artist, Rachelle Eason and press, boil and extract the plants’ hidden colors between layers of specialty paper. Students will learn what makes plants stain beautifully and leave textured designs as they design layouts from a variety of plant materials including flowers, leaves, herbs and edibles. Students will also learn to sew book bindings to create a charming journal and leave with one handstitched book and boiled book pages to bind, frame or incorporate into projects. Boiled book papers can be used for journals, stationary, or simply hung as art. 

Version 2

Eason is an artist, teacher, and inspirer. She is the owner and Chief Imagination Officer of BoiLeD BooKs, an international paper company featuring her colorful and textured eco-printed designs created through plant staining achieved by boiling. A teacher for over twenty years, Rachelle owned a contemporary retail studio in Shelby, NC for several years but her gypsy genes are strong and she is currently traveling to teach and sharing her art in studios and shows all around the US.

As a former classroom teacher with a Masters of Education, Rachelle emphasized art as an important vehicle in interactive learning for her students. Her passion for art has continued to grow since Saturday morning art lessons at the Carnegie Museum of Pittsburgh in her early childhood through honing her skills in college, graduate school, and with artists all around. Her journey has provided many experiences she loves to share.

Rachelle is invited to show and sell her art at special events around Walt Disney World. She was invited to set up shop to share her BoiLeD BooKs collection during the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Earth Day Celebration, and Art in August at Disney Springs.

Her mission as an artist is to inspire life long enrichment through art and to provide a wonderful array of experiences that invites everyone to take an entertaining adventure into self-expression!
