Eco Printing for Beginners

Sunday 7th Jul 2024, The Lookout Studio, The Base

Pressed green leaves printed on a surface

Eco-printing is a wonderful technique that uses only natural solutions and leaves to produce stunning prints of leaves.

In this workshop, you will eco-print your own 100% silk scarf, learn the techniques involved, and fuel your understanding of creating sustainably with nature.

You will learn:
• which leaves are best to use for successful eco-prints,
• how to prepare and bundle your fabric using a sustainable plastic-free method,
• how to process and wash your scarf, resulting in a unique design, permanently printed on silk in beautiful natural colours,
• You will also take away a mini kit to try out the technique at home.
