Eco-Printing for Parents and Teens - 13 October
Time & Location
About the Event
Spend the day immersed together in the obsessive and contemplative art of eco-print! Working side by side you will learn an exciting new skill while enjoying a day of creativity, activity and calm connection.
In this small group workshop you will spend gentle quality time as a pair foraging for leaves to print (weather permitting), creating some experimental eco-print bundles on pieces of silk fabric and then eco-printing a silk scarf.
Through these activities you will learn:
- about leaf selection
- about printing onto silk
- how to make your own iron mordant
- what basic equipment you will need to eco-print at home
- about fabric suppliers for eco-printing
All materials for printing, including sample fabrics and a silk scarf to print, are included in the course.
I will have additional silk scarves available for you to purchase for a small additional price on the day if you choose - you may want to take a few home with you to keep going.
You will come away from this workshop with a new creative obsession as well as some pieces of silk fabric and a scarf that you have eco-printed yourself.
Numbers are strictly limited to 6 participants - 3 pairs of a teen and their parent/guardian.
