Printing With Leaves
Friday 15th July 10am - 4pm
A day exploring colour and textures, printing with natural leaves and grasses.
You will learn the process of sublimation printing using disperse dyes. We will begin by selecting leaves and grasses to print with and applying colour to the leaves using the heat press.
There will be demonstrations at each step of this technique and you will be guided and encouraged to experiment with this exciting technique to produce some vibrant and interesting results.
The cost of this workshop includes the cost of all materials.
The cost of this workshop also includes refreshments and a delicious light lunch. Please inform our team of any allergies or dietary requirements when you book your place.
