Nature Printing Online Workshop 29th April, 8-9.30pm
Please note booking for this workshop closes on the 22nd April to ensure your kit will arrive in sufficient time.
Workshops will be held via Zoom and a kit will be sent to you with the materials required.
In this workshop you will explore the process of printing by hand using natural plant material. This is a process I incorporate into my creative practice. I find printing with nature a meditative process that connects with the environment and seasons and offers the opportunity to explore your own creativity.
During this hour and half I will take you through the process of mark making using water based block printing inks, dried foliage and working on my favourite fabric: Irish Linen.
No experience is needed. This will be an opportunity to explore, learn, and switch off from the pressures of daily lockdown life.
What you'll make....
As well as getting the chance to experiment with mark making and pattern. This workshop will also offer you the opportunity to turn your Irish Linen Nature Prints into your own Votive Jar! I'll be supplying you with a 30cl Candle jar, a beeswax candle and strips of pre cut Irish Linen so that you can make your own Votive.
When you book on you'll receive...
An email detailing the contents of your kit and what you'll need to provide (don't worry there's no specialist materials you need to provide- just a few household items)
A Zoom link to participate (you can use zoom on a computer, tablet or phone)
Your Nature Printing Kit, which includes a pot of Prussian Blue Ink, white Ink and Black Ink, a selection of Linens, a selection of dried foliage, a 30cl candle jar (not decorated as pictured here) and beeswax tealight, acetate sheet and sponge.
