Have you been interested in eco-printing but unsure on where to start or not getting the results you were hoping for?


During this 1 day workshop you will gather an understanding of the foundations of eco-printing, creating your own eco-printed pieces of fabric, shawl and paper.

I will offer handouts so that you can take all the foundational knowledge home to continue your explorations. The document will outline all the content from the workshop alongside highlighting my sources for your own further reading and investigations as well as some of my own discoveries.

This workshop is intended for beginners and will cover:

Pre-stages of fabric and paper selection and preparation.
