What will we do

This course is aimed at those with an interest in sustainability and well being through craft. We will learn eco printing and explore slow stitching as a way of enhancing well being. By using locally foraged Autumn botanicals, the course also seeks to encourage us to be more in tune with nature.

Over the two days, you will learn how to prepare fabrics for eco-printing through the use of mordant, how to use natural dye extracts to colour your fabric and learn how to eco-print fabrics using Autumn flowers and leaves. This will be followed by embroidering your printed fabrics to gain the benefits of this calming craft. All the whilst enjoying conversations with like-minded people.

What you need to bring

All materials, use of tools and equipment will be provided. You are welcome to bring your favourite plants/flowers, special threads and/or fabrics that have a special meaning to you.
