About the event
Explore the printing potential of spring leaves, in a relaxing and inspiring workshop at my home in south Liverpool.
After an initial introduction to the principles and practice of botanical contact ['eco'] printing, you will explore the printing potential of different spring leaves, and ways to enhance their definition and colour.
Whilst having fun in a relaxed environment, you will learn about differences between leaves and why they differ in their ability to make prints. Having printed some samples, you will print at least one piece of silk large enough for a scarf, and at least one stack of papers.
Participant numbers for the workshop are restricted to five, to maximise your experience. A minimum of three students is normally required for a workshop to run. Given the small size of the group, there will be plenty of time for detailed tuition and discussion.
All materials [worth £30], tea and coffee all day and a light vegetarian lunch are included in the workshop fee. If you prefer, you may bring your own lunch.
