ECO PRINTING WITH PLANTS with tutor Susan Martin
Create your own unique design on fabric using leaves and flowers. Susan will provide specially prepared fabric for you to arrange the plants on. This is then bundled tightly and steamed to release the dyes into the fabric and make the pattern. Up to 4 people per session (one and a half hours long). It is suitable for children but it would be best if they are accompanied by adults as there will be boiling water involved.
£9 per person/per go
Make a greeting card or small picture by using leaves and flowers on specially prepared paper. You will arrange the plants to make your design and have it steamed to transfer the colours to the paper.
£4.50 per person
NB Steaming will take about an hour so participants can have a look at what else is going on before they collect their prints.
SPOON CARVING with David from The Coppice Plot / Coppicewood College
2 sessions of spoon carving - 10 - 12:30 and 13:30 - 16:00. Participants will be carving out a pre-axed spoon blank into a spoon using knives. This will allow for them to get a taste for carving and to get to grips with a variety of knife grips.
Course size will be limited to 5 per session with an age limit of 16 on this one.
