Eco-Printing with Flowers + Plants: BYO @ CoExist, Hamilton House, Stokes Croft, Bristol

  • Hamilton House Stokes Croft Bristol, England, BS1 3QD United Kingdom (map)

Eco-printing is an awesome, contemporary traditional surface application technique, which allows you to make direct impressions on cloth, without the need for colour extraction or the dye pot.

In this class you can learn how to transfer colour from flowers, berries, leaves and waste foods, into beautiful repeat patterns using a simple fold, bind and steam method. Create plant based designs using your own fabric samples, small items of clothing or other textile projects. And take away something beautiful along with the skills to repeat the process for yourself again and again.

We recommend bringing a small, pre-washed item, made from 100% silk only, to use with this dye technique.

Notes:  Organic UK-grown silk will be available for additional purchase by the 1/2 metre at £28/metre (140 cm width). Cash only.

Please bring your own silk items to dye with or cash to purchase silk in class.

If bringing large items, please expect to pay an additional contribution and be sure to send an email notification in advance to hello@botanicalinks.com.

You are welcome to bring drinks and snacks.

Full Price: £30 / Concessions: £25
