About the Course
Our full year of 100+ set workshop dates are on OUR website (purple tab) along with availability and how to book.
Next year’s extensive programme of Quirky Workshops is launched in late October; often courses fill quickly as they make popular Christmas gifts. To be among the first to receive the new dates, please use the ‘Keep me Posted’ icon, at the top RHS of our website page. Thank you and Happy Crafting!
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
A fascinating day with Deborah learning how to create your own botanical contact prints with real leaves on fabric and paper and make your own unique silk scarf. In this workshop, suitable for all abilities, freshly collected leaves will be wrapped in pure silk, cotton and paper before being steamed to release their natural dyes and tannins in an eco friendly process.
Deborah will lead you step by step from the preparation of the fabric, the choosing and placement of suitable leaves through to the techniques needed to produce clear and lasting natural leaf prints.
If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
What's included in the price?
Welcome drinks : fresh coffee & home made biscuits, a lovely 2 course Aga lunch served in our farmhouse kitchen or outside on the Tea Lawn as soon as it's warm enough. To finish off the day, a freshly made cream tea (including Aga-baked scones, cream and jam).
Our days are considered special treats; many come back time and time again and often combine it with a short break to the Lake District.
We have been hosting and organising 'Quirky Workshops' since 2005 on the northern fringes of the Lake District. All our tutors are carefully hand selected experts and professionals and many considered as leading nationally in their field.
Please note that here will be an additional materials charge of £30
