Eco/Botanical prints

With a handful of leaves and petals you can make your own unique naturally printed cloth for a scarf, cushions or stitch project. Nature has an abundance of colour and texture throughout the year that we can harvest sustainably. On this workshop you’ll learn how to create beautiful Eco prints on various recycled cloths using sustainable local natural plants. You’ll sample first, experimenting on small samples to discover the fascinating patterns and colour from leaves, petals and berries, understanding how to extract colour, make an immersion dye bath, create repeated patterns, and fold, wrap and bind with everyday tools and materials. Then you’ll select your favourite samples to develop and make your final pieces.
