Elisabeth will introduce you to the practise of Eco Printing, from the preparation of the material (scouring and mordanting) to the printing process.

You will produce a number of pieces over two days using different variations and botanical. She will introduce some local and readily available eco dyes like onion skins and turmeric as well as some more sophisticated ones like the pink Sapanwood and the blue Logwood.

You will leave with a good selection of good size samples to incorporate in your work, frame or stitch onto.
