She has led lectures and demonstrations on woodblock printmaking and papermaking.
While at the Homestead National Monument of America, Davis will demonstrate techniques on home printing. She will be exploring techniques of making paper with the local flora and fauna, and she will also be carving simple woodcut prints of the landscape. She welcomes visitors to inquire, get dirty, learn, and experiment with her. She intends to make the paper that she prints on.
