Ecoprinting is a magical process that uses the natural tannins and dyes held within a plant to create some spectacular marks and prints on papers and fabric

This workshop is designed to develop all the skills and techniques you need to produce beautiful unique ecoprints.

It is suitable for beginners, who are keen to achieve clear defined prints that could be used in many varied textile projects.

We will create many samples, using a variety of different fabrics and techniques.  All the fabrics and papers you need will be provided

As part of the workshop we will also consider what equipment you need to start ecoprinting at home, simple mordanting techniques, where to source fabrics, supplies and equipment.
