These workshops are perfect for anyone interested in mark making using Botanical elements on paper and cloth. We will use a combination of "Blue" techniques like Indigo, Cyanotype, Eco Printing, Logwood dyeing and some local Botanical elements (leaves, berries, and others).

By the end of the workshop you will have gained the basics of those techniques and produce a good number of pieces of Art work on both new sustainable and recycled cloth and paper. Starter packs will be made available for you to carry on with any of those in your own time.

Elisabeth Viguie Culshaw is an Eco Artist who specialises in using Botanical elements in her Art. She is known for running Eco Community projects using recycled cloth provided by her local "partners" (Bed and Breakfast, Charity shops...) She uses local leaves to create Eco Prints and beautiful blue prints.

She will take you on a journey using 4 techniques to explore printing with them:

Week one: Cyanotype known as Blue Print is known to react to UV light and create the most beautiful Blue and White crisps prints out of dried leaves, flat lace and others... We will learn how to print but also how to prepare paper and fabric before the printing takes place.

Week two: Indigo is an Iconic vat dye, it is seen as a magical one when pieces come out of the vat yellow before turning blue when being oxidised by the oxygen in the air. We will learn to fold and clamp and stitch before putting our fabric into the blue vat and extracting some magical crips geometrical designs.

Week three: Eco Printing is a contact print technique using contact and heat to transfer leaf designs onto fabric or paper. We will explore how you can create leafy patterns using the local botanics onto cloth and a variety of paper.

Week four: Logwood dye is a natural dye giving the most beautiful shades of purple and blue depending on how acidic your dye bath is. We will explore how to create a dye bath with Logwood dye and how to play with the variety of shades you can extract. You will go home with samples of cloth and eco prints on paper with a beautiful Logwood background.

These workshops take place in my lovely studio in the West end of Glasgow. They are introductions to those techniques, you will be able to take home some starter packs after each workshop and with what you have learned from the classes carry your own experimenting at home.

These are perfect for anyone interesting to discover those techniques, for any quilters, embroiderers, crafter... beginners or not.

Please note that because of the timing of the workshops it is not suitable this time to incorporate your own material/paper. I will provide all the elements needed as well as tea/coffee/biscuits.

My studio is based in the old kitchen of a Victorian Building, you will need to go down a flight of stairs and I do not have a lift. Please only book if you are comfortable to go down stairs.

You can access it by public transport going along the Great Western Road and/or the Kelvinbridge underground. There is on street parking on the basis of pay and go.

Hope to see you there.
