About the Course
Building on your prior knowledge of botanical/'eco' printing principles [maybe from one of my Introductory Courses], this course will delve deeper into the use of tannins, iron and natural dyes in the creation of beautiful prints. It will also explore a range of fabrics and different methods of processing your textiles and papers.
You will create several prints on textiles and paper, using local leaves.

What's included in the price?
All dyes and mordants, fabric for first day and papers. Tea and coffee on arrival both days.
Although I do my own botanical printing, I wanted the chance to learn the processes properly as well as being within a friendly 'group' environment. I was also interested to find out how tannin works with iron to produce a range of effects. Maggie covers all the details, using her own examples that you can view first hand, plus she talks in detail about the methods used and also gives plenty of chance for any questions that you might want to ask.
It was a totally fascinating workshop and I learned so much. I made a beautiful scarf (which I have worn a lot!), I managed to use some of the leaves that I brought with me to the workshop, and, I also got to see how everyone else's work turned out, which was really helpful. A very enjoyable and useful workshop! :D

Response from By Maggie .. Naturally:Thanks very much Bev. I’m really glad that you felt you gained so much from the course, given your prior experience, and that it was a good experience. I look forward to seeing your future scarves. Maggie ☺️
I loved this course and Maggie is a font of knowledge on botanical contact printing, we arrived with lots of questions and left with a wealth of ideas, new skills and beautiful scarves. I would recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in eco printing, although be warned as it is fascinating and could easily turn into a full time hobby. Thank you Maggie.
