What could be better than an inspiring yet relaxing day learning the Secrets of Spring Leaves, in a small group [maximum 5] at my home and garden in south Liverpool, with lunch provided? Guided by Maggie Pearson, an experienced botanical printer and teacher, you will learn about leaves and their pigments, and how to unlock their potential to create crisp, well defined botanical prints and sophisticated backgrounds on fabric. You will print sample pieces of cotton or linen, a piece of peace silk large enough for a scarf, and a stack of papers. [If you prefer not to use animal fibres, plant-based substitute will be provided]. There will be no more than five students, which gives a unique opportunity and ample time for discussion and response to individual questions. People who've been on my workshops have said: "Thanks again for a brilliant workshop on Tuesday. My head is buzzing with future projects." [Susan] "Thank you very much for a great day and for all you do to help us to produce some lovely prints. Thanks too, for the lovely lunch and your hospitality throughout the day. I thoroughly enjoyed it." [Chris]
