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.
