About this Event

In this three week online course you will be introduced to the wonderful technique of ecoprinting and will learn how to create your own ecoprints on paper. Each week you will receive a different module taking you through the steps to create your own prints. This technique can be done at home using a few basic materials and Autumn is a great time to have a go at this as there's plenty of leaves avaliable on the ground. 

In module 1 you will gather together all the materials and equipment that you need, including plant matter, and prepare your prints by creating bundles ready for printing. In module 2 you will learn how to heat your bundles to create your prints and finally in module 3 you will unwrap your bundles to reveal your prints and decide how you would like to present them. This course has been designed so that you can either complete it week by week or in your own time at a later date. You will have access to the course content for a year. 

This course starts on Wednesday 14th October and will run for three weeks. Each Wednesday you will be sent a link so that you can access that week's module. The cost of the course is £50 with an early bird offer of £40 if you sign up before 1st October.

This course has been designed by Sally Gunnett an artist who works with natural elements to record places and periods of time, mainly using plants and their naturally occurring dyes. She graduated with a degree in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College in 2003 and is currently undertaking an MA in Artist Teacher Practice having completed the first year with a distinction. She works as a freelance artist and teacher having previously taught art and photography in mainstream education for over a decade, becoming a head of department before deciding to concentrate on her own artistic practice after giving birth to her son. She continues her love of teaching by delivering online courses and workshops. Click here to see examples of some of Sally's own ecoprints.

Sally has work in private and public collections and has exhibited nationally including at the Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair for the past three years. She completed a residency in 2018 as part of the New: Defence arts project in Essex which culminated in a solo exhibition of the work created. For more information and examples of her work see her website here: https://sallygunnett.com/about/
