Eco Printing & Shibori 2 day course April 24th/25th
April 24 - April 25
Eco printing is perhaps best described as natural printing, the colours and outlines obtained are from the plants themselves; no inks or paints are used. Discover how to eco print fabrics and paper with leaves and flowers – eco printing allows you to print directly with plants. This 2 day course will enable us to look a little at natural dyes as well before going on to dye with indigo and design using Shibori techniques. Shibori will concentrate on stitching (simple running stitch) with some clamping and folding. Use the new techniques you’ve learned in your own projects or just come and enjoy the workshop exploring something new.
Eco printing runs over two days and will flow into Shibori on the second day so you can discover lots of skills and get a good overview of different processes and how they can combine beautifully. Shibori however can be booked just as a one day course – I can run these days in different ways so tell me what you want to learn and if I can help I will do.
