This workshop is perfect for textile and multi media artists as well as patchwork lovers and embroiderers. You can be a perfect beginner with an aim to learn the technique as well as a more advance participant.

Elisabeth will introduce you to the practise of Eco Printing, from the preparation of the material (scouring and mordanting) to the printing process.

You will produce a number of pieces over two days using different variations and botanical. She will introduce some local and readily available eco dyes like onion skins and turmeric as well as some more sophisticated ones like the pink Sapanwood and the blue Logwood.

You will leave with a good selection of good size samples to incorporate in your work, frame or stitch onto.

You can expect:

to be introduced to the technique and be given some recipes

to work with at least 2 natural dyes

to produce at least 5 good size pieces of work and be offered the opportunity to print a silk scarf (at additional cost).

to work on cotton, linen, wool, paper of different kind

In the fee are included all material used over the two days as well as a sandwich lunch, teas and coffees as well as sweet treats, and a small starter pack for you to have another go at home.
