Event description
Create an original tote bag print inspired by nature with Louise Worthy

About this event

About the class

Local artist, Louise Worthy, will teach you how to use natural plant material to print onto a fabric tote bag using specialised fabric inks which can then be ironed to make the bag washable and reusable. Tote bags are handy to have to take out shopping to reduce plastic bag usage and do your bit to help the planet.

Get inspired by nature! Before the session go out into the garden or for a walk and see what interesting fallen leaves or dead grasses or stems you can collect. Be careful that you know what you are picking and only take what you need, you won’t need a lot as you can re-use one leaf several times before it breaks up. It is advisable to print using leaves & plants that have been dried/pressed so they don’t transfer any sap to the fabric when being printed.

A link to join the Zoom session will be sent to you by email in advance of the session.
