Monday 2nd to Sunday 3rd March
Eco print dyeing is a fascinating way of printing onto fabric. Using flowers and leaves from the countryside,
this is a direct and natural printing method that allows the flora and foliage to give up their colours and patterns.
The most mundane of plants can give amazing results. The fabrics used will all be natural fabrics including fine
Haboti silk, wild silk, cotton and a very fine merino weave. The colours and prints produced are fast. Each print is
unique in its colour and pattern.
Materials cost £15 (silk scarves available at optional extra cost)
