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
  • Which 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:

  • Tuition
  • 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

Please let me know about any future workshops in Long Compton: I would love to do more botanical printing having started last year with Suzanne Connors, and Long Compton is a bit closer to me than US

Hi Caroline. I love your sweaters (cashmere or cotton) and would love to purchase one but I would need a 38 size bust. Can you let me know if you have any in this size. I don't seem to see them.

Hi Caroline:
I'm the person who didn't make it to Morocco...and I really don't want to wait until next fall to take some instruction from you. Any suggestions for a course I could take in the meantime
