Eco Dyeing (also called leaf print or eco print) is a direct contact dye method drawing out pigments from leaves into fabric or paper. In this full-day workshop, we will focus on how to successfully eco-dyeing onto a selection of different papers. We will go for a short walk around the studio to collect some plant material, which we will then use to create our eco bundles. Let’s get wild!
You will learn about:
- Suitable plants and papers
- preparation of paper for dyeing (mordanting)
- how to finish your papers to protect them
Included in the workshop fee are a variety of different papers to play and experiment with and a handout with more information.
Tools and materials for the workshop are provided; a ‘what to bring list’ will be sent out closer to the workshop.
Bring your own lunch, refreshments provided. Booking: firstname.lastname@example.org.
