Botanical Printing with Slow Stitching - 30th August 2024
RHS Harlow Carr, Harrogate

Introduction to eco printing using leaves. You will be guided through the process of nature-based printing by demonstrating the mordanting and steaming involved of the fabric and paper. The process is unpredictable and results in a subtle colour palette suggestive of alchemy and traditional fabric staining. You will experiment wrapping leaf collections into bundles, producing a series of samples. You will also look at slow stitching and piecing fabrics together.

I will supply the leaves and flowers required for the workshop.

This workshop is suitable for those with no prior knowledge of textiles or dyeing techniques. 


Please note: Clothing is at risk of staining so please dress appropriately in an apron, bring rubber gloves and also a plastic bag to take away wet items.  

This workshop takes place at RHS Harlow Carr, Harrogate
