Eco Dyeing – Pattern from Plants
Friday 14th July 2017
9.45am - 4.30pm
Tutor: Sue Pearl

Eco dyeing or printing is a fascinating way of transferring the colours and patterns of flowers and leaves onto textiles, with astonishingly beautiful results. You will be amazed at the effects you can get from the most mundane of plants, using this direct contact printing method. This is not a vegetable dyeing course but an exploration into the surprising and delighting effects that can be achieved by wrapping plants in cloth. We will use flowers and leaves from our own gardens, the school garden and surrounding countryside. The course has been arranged to coincide with when the plants are in full of vigor. Book a place and plan your foraging!
