Eco-print dyeing is a fascinating way of printing onto fabric. Using flowers and leaves from gardens and countryside, this is a direct contact printing method that allows the flora and foliage to give up their colours and patterns. It's amazing the effects and results that the most mundane of plants can produce.
The course includes the use of electric cooker tops, large saucepans, pipes cut to size for wrapping, string, plastic for wrapping, bags to enclose for the cooking, mordants, containers, rubber gloves, a quantity of foliage both bought and collected, an assortment of fabrics for sampling on and a silk scarf for the final print.
Tuition is for complete beginners to advanced levels participants.
