Enjoy a day exploring dye sublimation using the heat press to create unique and exciting designs. You will be carefully guided through the different stages by demonstrations and will begin by collecting leaves from the gardens.
In the morning we will prepare dye papers and add colour to the leaves ready to print onto a range of different polyester fabrics.
This fascinating technique produces vibrant designs with incredible detail and the results are often surprising.
No experience needed, suitable for beginners interested in trying new textile techniques.
