Eco-printing and dyeing is a fun activity that inspires curiosity about nature and creativity. In this workshop we will discover why some plants are better at natural printing, and experiment with other foraged plants and found objects to create amazing colours and textures on watercolour paper. An option of a concertina journal or a simple frame will complete the beautiful art pieces. Participants will also paint with flowers on watercolour paper, and adjust the pH to modify the colours.
All materials are included – you are welcome to bring plants from the garden. Please wear clothes to get a little messy.
