About the Course

Discover the exciting process of eco-printing on paper with Sue and Isobel of 'abitmoreink' during this relaxed one day workshop and create beautiful botanical imagery, textures and colour using locally foraged leaves with natural dyes.
You will be able to create a minimum of three unique artist concertina books, plus a selection of single images for framing or making in to gift cards.

No previous experience is needed as you will be carefully guided through each step, making this course suitable for beginners or those who are looking to combine natural dyes with a printing process.

This workshop will provide you with the basic knowledge of the process of eco-printing on to paper and allows you to leave with the confidence to continue experimenting at home.

After booking and prior to the event, you will be sent a complimentary list of plants and leaves to consider if you wish to bring some of your own foliage for further experimentation during the class.
During the event you will also receive a handout giving you plenty of guidance should you wish to continue with the process at home.
