Eco Printing with Ailsa 2
June 20 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Eco-printing from nature can be used for backgrounds for your calligraphy, both on paper and fabrics. In the first session we will have a look at some of the possibilities of this technique and then you can prepare your bundles for the dye pots. These will be steeped overnight to be ready for you to unwrap in the second session to excitement all round!
Cotton, silk and wool fabrics work well, but due to the limitations of the size of my cooking pots, large items can not be dyed on this occasion. Good quality printing and watercolour papers work very well, and even cartridge papers can give good results. The heavier the weight of the paper, the less distortion of the sheets.
