Art can be accessible, natural, biodegradable and fun!
If you wanted to try eco colour this workshop will be full of learning. Come to draw the buds, leaves and branches to observe the marvel of nature and learn how to make eco dyes at home.
Natural elements used only.
It is a Living colour!
ZERO chemicals used in eco-printing. Only local windfall, berries and seeds used to extract colour.
What we will do:
Eco print paper with fallen leaves and flowers.
Assemble a creative custom journal, try sample eco dyes and write down recopies to re-create at home to use for dyes, paints, upcycling.
Prints can be framed, used as cards, further worked with paint or thread - loads of possible creative paths to explore!
You will eco print on watercolour paper, try the range of extracted natural colours and make your own book of recipes, paint on watercolour paper and learn other skills to feed your creative soul.
We will use:
Upcycled and new various paper, botanical inks, autumn fallen leaves and seed pods.
We will learn:
Which local leaves and flowers make most dazzling eco prints. How to organically extract a rainbow range of vernacular (local) colours.
