Description:caroline 3

One day workshop working with both fabric and paper. Using a selection of different fabrics and papers, participants will learn about the process of Eco printing, the types of leaves which produce the best results and the different ways in which the leaves can be processed. They will have the opportunity to work with a variety of mordants which can radically alter the outcomes of the prints.

At the end of the day it is anticipated that students will go away with a great selection of samples and some ideas about how to take the techniques further. Caroline provides all the equipment, mordants, dyes etc. but not fabric or paper

hello. we were wondering if there were any spaces left on the course eco printing for the 21 oct, it will be for myself and my daughter.
also i would be interested in the dress making. i spoke to Alison at the knit and stitch. i didn’t
enrol for the course you were starting as i would have missed 2 lessons. My only concern is the time it finishes as i will need to pick up my son from southampton for 4 ish. also a friend said she would be interested.
look forward to hearing from you. jo foulkes


hello Jo … I only have one space left on the 21st of october eco-printing i am afraid, but I have three spaces on 14th Eco printing-paper which is next week. 10-4…
as for the dressmaking I will get another set of dates fro Lynn after Christmas, this term she was offering dressmaking in the afternoon but also an evening session which might suit you better. I will add you to our circulation lists… let me know if you want the eco class and i will let you know about the next dressmaking… thanks for your enquiry
