Event description

Description

This workshop is taking place in the beautiful Kibble Palace @ The Glasgow Botanics. The Botanics is the perfect place for discovering and harvesting the necessary leaves needed for this eco printing workshop.

Eco printing is the natural method of creating pattern using botanical material and steam without adding any colour, the beautiful impression comes from the natural pigment of the leaves. Different seasons will give very different colours and most beautiful impressions. This is a truly magical process

You will take a walk around the garden to discover the best trees for Eco printing and harvest some leaves. You will familiarise yourself with the basic technique of eco printing and will work both on new and recycled paper. You will create beautiful and unique work using the leaves you have discovered.

In the second part of the workshop you will work with natural material and eco print a scarve, your very own scottish scarve with your specially selected leaves.

You will leave with a good number of samples of your practice and a beautiful scarve to cherish the days to come.

The workshop will last 5 hours with a coffee break in the middle and you will have time for a wonder around the gardens.

We meet at the Kibble Palace where the workshop is taking place. Tea coffee and biscuits are included but not lunch, You are welcome to bring your own, we very often have a working lunch... but there is an ice cream van if the weather proves great :)

Bring some latex gloves if you have delicate skin as we use an iron solution which can be slightly drying on the skin. All material is supplied but if you have nice paper you want to recycle bring it and we will include it in the bundle.

This workshop is not for children but fee free to book it for your teenagers if you are coming along with them.

Many example of the work done is visible on my website www.thelansdownehouseofstencils.com
