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.
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.
Response from Earthwise Ecoprints:Thank you for your lovely review Kate. It was so lovely to meet you and work with such a brilliant group on Saturday. I am pleased you were enthused by the Ecoprint process - it does come with an addictive warning!!
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.
Response from Earthwise Ecoprints:Thank you for your lovely review Janet and well done to your husband for buying you a fabulous gift!
Such an enjoyable day full of activities and new learning. Fiona was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and extremely patient with all of us! Thank you so much, very much recommended.
Response from Earthwise Ecoprints:Thank you for your lovely review Eva. It was so nice to meet you and I was so thrilled that you felt it worth such a long journey. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching and seeing all the wonderful prints that were created. Fiona x
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.
I loved the course. Fiona gets the right mixture between teaching the theory different chemical elements of eco printing and being able to actually get hands on experience.
Its the second course of Fiona's I have been on and I would go to more of her workshops so I totally recommend if you are interested in eco printing.
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!
Response from Earthwise Ecoprints:Thank you for your lovely review Teresa. It was really lovely to meet you and share the magical process of Ecoprint with you. So pleased you enjoyed it. xxx
A superb day course which I took with my husband. I'm really pleased with all the cards, papers and three books I produced. Fiona is such a brilliant teacher, the venue is fantastic and everyone else on the course (some had done eco printing before and some hadn't) were friendly and enthusiastic. A really beautiful day. This is my second day course on eco-printing with Fiona and I'll be back for more!
If you are looking for a fast-paced ecoprint workshop to learn lots of new skills, this is for you. Everything was really well organised, which meant that we sped through lots of different techniques. I was exhausted by the end of the day, but happy I'd been able to get such a comprehensive grounding in ecoprinting. Great value for money.
Response from Earthwise Ecoprints:Thank you for your lovely review Pippa. Great to meet you. So pleased you enjoyed the workshop.
I'm feeling accomplished after taking the ecoprinting workshop. It was a busy day with with lots of activities to do and techniques well explained. I came home with a pile of prints and two finished note books that I hand stitched together on the day. Everything was provided and set in great location with outside space and parking. I can highly recommend this course.
Response from Earthwise Ecoprints:Thank you Tricia. So lovely to have you at the workshop. So pleased you enjoyed it.
A stunning day course with a huge number of outputs on paper and fabrics of all types. Such a delightful insight into plant materials and their incredible properties. Fantastic pace to the day and a stellar teacher. Thank you so much.
This was such a fun day and we made loads of different prints on both paper and Fabric. This is a very satisfying craft and Fiona made it fun, fast paced but also taught us a lot throughout the day. We were amazed by the end of the day with what we had made! I highly recommend this course. Good for both arty and not so arty people alike. The work has a magical quality to it and you then have lots of fabric to make other things from to take home. A fab day.
Response from Earthwise Ecoprints:Thank you for your lovely review Zoe. I am so pleased you enjoyed the day and have started to get hooked on this fabulous craft!!
What a fabulous day, we accomplished a huge amount and learnt a great deal from Fiona who was brilliant and knowledgeable. I came away very satisfied with what we had achieved and couldn't wait to show off my creations! Would recommend this to anyone.
Response from Earthwise Ecoprints:Thank you for your lovely review Vanessa. I am so pleased you enjoyed the day. See you soon x
