Botanical Impressions Book
with Claire Cawte
Friday 8 November. 10am-4pm. 2 PLACES LEFT
The yard:ARTspace is delighted to welcome back Claire Cawte and the alchemy of Eco Dyeing.
Using a collection of leaves and petals you can learn how to prepare your paper and extract colour from plants to create attractive prints.
Exploring the features and textures of leaves for patterning, learn how to extract colour experimenting with papers, fold, wrap and bind for the Eco Print effect, transferring detail onto the papers which secretly happens during the bundle dyeing method.
Choosing from your favourite pieces you will assemble your pages to create a small botanical print book.
