Secrets of Spring leaves – natural dye workshop
We are very excited to be welcoming back Maggie from ‘By Maggie Naturally’ for a day long natural dye workshop, 10:30 to 3:30pm.
Maggie is an expert in botanical eco-printing and creates stunning fabric designs using natural dyes and printing techniques. Find out more and see examples of her work at: https://www.bymaggienaturally.co.uk/ and on Instagram or Facebook at @bymaggienaturally
£85 per person, including all materials and refreshments (hot drinks and cake) although you will need to bring a packed lunch with you.
Only 5 places available!
Explore the printing potential of spring leaves, in a relaxing and inspiring workshop at Wildwood Days.
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 peace silk large enough for a scarf, and at least one stack of papers.
There will be plenty of time for detailed tuition and discussion.
All materials, fully prepared (worth £30) are included in the workshop fee.
A brief List of Requirements of things to bring to the workshop will be sent out to you after booking.
