What is Eco Printing?
It’s an environmentally friendly vibrant form of printing that uses natural organic materials bundled up in cloth. The ‘bundle’ is then steamed, capturing the beautiful colourful essences, giving a unique Eco print. It’s low impact and zero waste. We will be using foraged leaves, berries and kitchen spices.
Why take this class?
It’s really fun and a great starting point to learn botanical printing basics. You’ll learn a sustainable crafting skill that can be used to prolong the life of clothing, make stunning eco gifts or create wall art, all reducing your environmental impact. You will leave with a sense of achievement, wonderful fabric samples and great joy.
What will we do?
Jane our tutor, from ArtyFarty Art will welcome you and settle you in. Not only is she an experienced and knowledgeable tutor, she’s is an awesome artist blessed with a wonderful sense of humour. She will gently guide you step by step through the whole process from preparing your fabric, which botanicals deliver great colour, how to tie up and steam your bundles to fixing your colour. We will have a question and answer session whilst we await the steaming, around 35 mins. After this we will unwind and have the grand WOW reveal. Be warned, it’s addictive!
