About this event

This is a perfect online workshop for beginners, in two sessions you will learn the basic of creating a Botanical Print on fabric. You will learn to prepare, print and finish your cloth.

I use the Zoom platform to run it , it is simple to follow but you need fast internet and a good machine.

Via an interactive set of pre workshop notes, home preparations and live sessions you will learn how to get clear prints on a selection of material using a steaming process.

Day 1: We will work at understanding our process, we will mordant our fabric and prepare dye and tannin and discuss our techniques. You will learn all about selecting and preparing your fabrics and finishing your work once the prints are completed.

Day 2: We will combine some natural dye and tannin with our mordants and plants to produce some stunning printed pieces on all your fabrics. I will demonstrate those techniques in the live session. You can join me or work after with the video repeat.

What is included:

Pre workshop notes for preparations.

PDF instructions to keep.

The tuition over two live zoom sessions and access to the videos for 4 weeks.

One Show and tell session one week after the event to share results.
