I shall be releasing more dates for workshops in Long Compton Warwickshire shortly
2 day workshop focusing on eucalyptus
May 30-31 2020, Long Compton, Warwickshire
Eucalyptus can be
one of the most spectacular leaves to ecoprint with. It can also be a challenge. Not all varieties will give the reds and oranges that we are seeking, and it requires a different processing technique from other leaves to get the best from it.
Come and spend
2 days in my Warwickshire garden and studio, learning to get those elusive reds.
Who is the workshop for?
What we will cover
How to process eucalyptus and fabric to get those reds
How to cook your bundles using both steaming and immersion methods
Working with and without barriers
Working primarily with wool and silk, the fabrics with which it
is easiest to get reds, but we will also cover how to treat cellulose fabrics ( linen, cotton, viscose) to get red prints on those too
How to grow eucalyptus even in a small garden, and where to source it if you can't grow it yourself
UK varieties of eucalyptus will print
How to test eucalyptus to find out if it will print red
How to store eucalyptus for later use
We will start by making samples using various different techniques, and progress
to printing larger pieces, scarves and clothing
Price £220 for both days
What is included:
A selection of eucalyptus - home grown, locally
gathered, and florist bought - varieties that are tried and trusted to give reds
Sample cloth for day one including wool, silk, and linen treated for you with soya and ready to print
A generous square of luxurious heavy wool, big enough to
make the front of a cushion or bag
Tea, coffee, cold drinks and cookies
Lunch on day one will be bring and share, lunch on day 2 will be provided
