After being a course leader and lecturer in Horticulture at Nottingham Trent University for nearly 20 years I am now working on a new venture in Limousin, France. In our plant nursery and garden school we aim to carry on sharing our passion for horticulture and natural crafts.
Specialist subjects include plant science, propagation, plant identification, specialist traditional and modern pruning and maintenance techniques. We also teach greenwood crafts, weaving, stained glass art and other crafts using natural materials.
Come along and have a go at ‘Eco-printing’ techniques. This technique uses botanicals and other natural materials to create beautiful and unique designs on natural fabric and paper. You will experiment with leaves, flowers, berries, bark and rust combined with plant based dyes to print onto cotton and paper samplers. You can bring your own T-shirt or household linen to work on too. You will go home with some unique prints and an understanding of the materials and processes involved so that you can go away and experiment at home.
Wednesday 30th September 1-4pm 35€
