It was a great course that was well structured and gave us the opportunity to try out printing on a range of materials. We were kept busy and I came away with a lot of samples that I will be able to use in future projects. Also thanks for the homemade cookies and lemon drizzle cake.

A wonderful day spent learning the magical process of eco printing. Fiona's excellent teaching skills and sheer delight in her craft thoroughly enthused me - will definitely be trying this at home.
An added bonus were the delicious home made biscuits and cake.

Helen Swain - - #39015

This was a thoroughly enjoyable course. We packed so much into the 6 hours and learned lots of different printing techniques on various surfaces and fabrics. Fiona provided a clear and easy to follow step by step explanation for each technique and showed us what we could use to carry on ecoprinting ourselves at home if we wanted. No previous crafting or artistic experience was needed. The location was perfect with the tables well spaced and apart from the items Fiona asked us to bring, everything else was provided including a delicious lemon drizzle cake. Highly recommended.

Response from Earthwise Ecoprints:

Thank you for your lovely review Helen. It was lovely to meet you last Saturday and work with such a brilliant group.
So pleased you enjoyed Ecoprinting- it is very addictive!

This was a fabulous introductory day to ecoprinting. Fiona was excellent combining the right amount of providing the information we needed to know with practical printing on paper and fabric and we all came away with some lovely projects made during the day. I can’t quite believe how she managed to pack so much in. I thoroughly enjoyed the session and will be looking out for more sessions in the spring when they start again.

What a fantastic day doing the 'Introduction to Eco Printing' with Fiona on Oct 2nd.
Fiona taught us so much, about the different methods of eco printing, how different leaves and flowers worked with the different processes. I came home with a lovely wide range of prints on paper, wool and linen printed up in differing colours and styles. I am buzzing with ideas on how to use and develop what I learned and created on the day.
Fiona's enthusiasm is infectious and she is a great teacher and covers a huge amount in one day.

Also - The venue is lovely - the reading rooms are easy to get to and there is ample parking, lots of space inside as well. Fiona's cake and biscuits were great too!

I thoroughly recommend this course with Fiona, you will have fun and learn an awful lot!
