Spring Eco-printing is tutored by Caroline Bell. For more information abut Caroline, please visit www.caroline-bell.co.uk
Spring Eco-printing is a two day class where students will learn the basics of Eco Printing. Using plants and leaves of the season to produce a series of samples, a broad spectrum of colours will be achieved with a variety of prints.. Tuition will be given as to the plants which will produce the most successful results for the season. Students will learn the correct use of mordants and methods of modifying those colours to achieve a whole rainbow of samples. This debunks the myth that eco printing produces only muddy or insipid results which do not last.. Students will learn Caroline’s methods , mainly boiling fabric bundles , to create some fabulous results.
Spring Eco-printing fee is £130. You should pay the non-refundable deposit of £65 prior to the class which will secure your place. On receipt of the deposit you will get a confirmation email and your place added to the class
Caroline teaches a series of workshops at the Granary Studio throughout the year. Please visit www.granarystudio.com for more information
