Spend a week end in my lovely West end of Glasgow based studio learning the ropes of Eco Printing on Silk. From preps to Scarf printing

About this Event
You will spend two days in my lovely West end of Glasgow based studio learning the ropes of Eco Printing on Silk.

We will learn to select and prepare our material and the basics of Printing with leaves. We will tackle simple natural dyes and learn to create coloured back ground for our print by pre-dyeing as well as via blanket work where the print and the coloured background are created in the one session.

We will trouble shoot and learn to work with simple, readily available dyes and leaves as well as work with more sophisticated dyes like the exciting Sapanwood I bring back from my travels in Asia.

You will learn with new knowledge to explore further, some samples to take home and one to two scarfs to wear and love for years to come.

The material used on the day is very suitable for textile art if scarves are not your thing...

All material (including two 35 cms x 150 cms silk scarves) are included in the price of the course as well as lunches (sandwich and fruit) tea and coffee and sweet treats.

My studio is located in the West end of Glasgow easily accessible from the M8 but also from local public transport (from main train station/bus station). Parking is plentiful but metered.

This workshop is perfect wether you are a total beginner or a more advanced printer. It is not suitable for children.

Please note my studio is based in our lower old Victorian kitchen and you need to walk down our stairs. The location is not suitable if you have access issues.
