About the Course

Join us in the idyllic rural setting of Cedar Farm for our one day Botanical Eco printing class with Maggie Pearson.

Botanical Eco Printing uses leaves, tightly bundled in fabric or stacked in layers of paper and steamed over hot water or immersed in a steam or dye bath to extract and transfer pigments from the leaves to create a unique imprint of the leaf.

In this intermediate class you will expand your knowledge by exploring tannins and iron to add definition to your printing.

Botanical printer, Maggie Pearson will talk you through a variety of leaves, plant matter, and natural mordants to expand your knowledge of natural dyeing and eco printing.

A jam packed day, with tea and homemade cake provided, within the beautiful rural setting of Cedar Farm Craft Centre.

£50 plus £10-£15 materials fee.

Response from Cedar Farm Gallery:

Thanks so much for the kind words Jayne. Hope to see you again at another class!

Fantastic and informative course run by Maggie. Well paced to involve all levels of skill, Maggie demonstrated all steps to producing a lovely silk scarf by the end of the day. Lovely atmosphere and venue. Looking forward to attending the next course and hoping it will be across 2 days.
