      EVENT DETAILS
      Autumn Eco-Printing (on paper) Workshop

      Join eco-prinitng artists Issy Denton and Sue Ripley for a full day of eco-printing and create beautiful prints, colours and textures on paper from the foliage of locally-gathered plants and trees. During this session you will be using two different eco-printing processes - a steam and a natural dye bath simmer - the processng techniques both offer exciting, but very different, colour results. The day also includes a local walk, where you will have time to forage and gather your own selection of plants and leaves for the eco-print "bundle" you will create in the afternoon.  Note: Please check the weather on the day of the workshop and please dress accordingly, making sure you wear comfortable walking shoes. Please advise us when booking of any mobility issues, so we can adapt the workshop accordingly. This very hands-on workshop will allow time to create two exciting concertina eco-print "bundles", using two different processing techniques and various leaf and foliage combinations. Sue and Issy are artists and tutors with a specialist background in textiles, print-making and costume. They have numerous years of experience in creating and running practical-based workshops. Only natural dyes and non-toxic mordants are used in all of the processes. This workshop will be creative, fun and messy! Cost; £60 per person - includes all materials and equipment use. Complimentary tea,coffee and biscuits provided. Skill level: Suitable for beginners.
