Green and Blue Eco Printing

About Green and Blue Eco Printing

Under the right conditions, the prolonged contact of a leaf onto cloth or paper can make a beautiful print. In this two-day course, you will learn the basics of Eco printing. Using local botanical material and working with heat and light you will transfer the shapes or pigments of the leaves onto paper or fabric. Learning the secrets of mordants, and tannin and iron bath, the resulting prints can be used to produce scarves/artwork or greeting cards.

This workshop is available to all 16+ and no previous experience is necessary. Please wear old clothes to avoid stains from the printing or the mineral used.

Elisabeth Viguie-Culshaw is a Glasgow based stencil artist who specializes in turn of the century stenciling. She was responsible for the re-creation of the Charles Rennie Mackintosh stencils on display in House for an Art Lover. She researches, teaches and works on commissions. Recently she completed a restoration project in a George Walton A-listed property in Dunblane.
