Botanical Printing is a process where you can use the colours from leaves tocreate unique textiles and papers.
This beginners workshop will introduce you to the basics to get good prints on fabric.
You will be exploring ways to prepare your fabrics and discuss the process using the leaves gathered around the studio.
This is a hands on workshop and you will be encouraged to create samples and record your exploration so that you can take away the skills and carry on at home.
You will finish the day making a unique piece of fabric which you can use to make a scarf or use in your ownprojects.
