About the event

Explore the printing potential of summer leaves in a relaxing and inspiring workshop at my home in south Liverpool and its well stocked garden.

Building on your knowledge of the principles and practice of botanical contact ['eco'] printing, you will explore the printing potential of different summer leaves, and ways to enhance the definition and colour of your leaves and prints.

Whilst having fun in a small group and relaxing environment, you will learn about differences between leaves and why they differ in their ability to make prints. Having printed some samples with different leaves and natural dyes, you will print at least one piece of fabric large enough for a small scarf, and at least one stack of papers.

There will be plenty of time for discussion. Participant numbers for the workshop are restricted to five maximise your experience and enable social distancing. Normally, a workshop needs a minimum of three participants to run. 


Workshop fee includes all mordants and dyes and some materials [worth £40], tea & coffee all day and a light vegetarian lunch each day. If you prefer, you may bring your own lunch. A vegan lunch can be provided if required.

You will be strongly encouraged to bring your own scoured fabric [details will be given after booking], or may purchase prepared fabric from me if preferred.
