Eco-Printing with Plants
Time & Location
About the Event
Tiwtor/Tutor: Christine Thomas, Purple Shed Studios
Christine will be running a two-day workshop exploring how to eco-print onto natural fabrics such as silk and cotton. On Day 1, we start with a short walk to gather plants to dye with, participants will produce ‘bundles’ to steam and boil to unwrap and reveal a beautiful print. We will also print onto cotton rag paper. Day 2 will be an introduction into slow stitching and book binding. Using your prints from the previous day, you will hand stitch the silk and cotton, embracing the practice of slow stitching. The dyed papers will be used to stitch together a small booklet that participants can take home.
Materials costs for this workshop are included. Book in and enjoy a weekend of making!
