MORE ECO PRINTING

Eco printing unlocks the natural dyes within plant materials and allows you to create amazing permanent images on paper and fabric. This workshop expands on previous sessions, exploring and combining sampling techniques and resulting in at least one, full length, printed silk scarf. Attendance on earlier eco printing courses helpful but not essential.
