Service Description

Friday 24th May 9am to 5pm Saturday 25th May 9.30am to 4.30pm ish Beginners most welcome. Please note this is a 2 day course. Eco-printing involves fresh, dried, whole & complete, wind damaged, nibbled, broken fallen leaves being placed on layers of fabric - rolled and bound tightly before heating to extract the botanical images permanently. A mindful process experiencing each season of nature as she gifts us botanical treasures and discoveries. This 2 day workshop will entail a full understanding of eco-printing on cellulose fabric. It is a hands-on course where we delve into this wonderful medium of capturing nature between layers of thick linen. You will be creating 2 pieces of 150 x 50cm hemp-linen. Large enough to make 2 double sided pillow covers. A wonderful mordant recipe will be yours which will create clear crisp prints and with the use of a tannin blanket which will bring in a background dye colour for even more beautiful results. Eco-printing on paper is also included. R3800 per participant On Friday a not so brief chat will be followed by some foraging, collecting and then the rest of the day we will be creating. A lovely interlude of a late-ish lunch will take place around 1.30pm. Friday will end at 5pm. Please let me know soonest of any special dietary requirements. There will be a coffee/tea & snack station available throughout the day. Saturday will run the same as Friday with lunch a little earlier and the day ending at around 5pm ish.
