Service Description

09H30 to 17H30 Saturday 25th March The Studio, de Trafford Wines, Stellenbosch Beginners most Welcome! 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. Crisp strong prints on 1m of natural hemp-linen. We will hero the humble tendrils of Helichrysum and there after my talented assistant Gertie Mutandwa will sew your printed fabric into a gorgeous wide brim hat. Cost includes seamstress fees but excludes postage fees. The workshop will entail a full understanding of eco-printing on hemp-linen. It is a hands-on course where we delve into this wonderful medium of capturing nature between layers of thick linen. A wonderful mordant recipe will be yours which will create clear crisp prints. All eco-printed creations have to be washed gently in cold water with a mild soap and avoid a lengthy time in the sunlight. R1950 per participant We will gather 9.30am at de Trafford Manor House, a 100m up from de Trafford Winery. 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. The day will end at 5.30pm Please let me know soonest of any special dietary requirements. There will be a coffee/tea & snack station available throughout the day. I will be in contact with you-via Whatsapp- closer to workshop date.
