Eco-print dyeing on fabric & leather with Sue Pearl

Join artist Sue Pearl for an Introduction to Eco-printing on fabric and leather at the Heritage and Rural Skills Centre at the Model Farm in Coleshill.

  • Booking essential

Eco print dyeing is a fascinating way of printing onto fabric and leather. You will be creating your very own beautiful dyed scarf, to take home with you, using the techniques you have learned throughout the day. Using flowers and leaves from gardens and countryside, this is a direct contact printing method that allows the flora and foliage to give up their colours and patterns. The most mundane of plants can give a whole variety of hues. This is not vegetable dyeing but an art of the surprising effects that can be achieved just by wrapping plants in cloth and steaming the bundle. This is a method of printing directly onto fabric to retain the colour, shape and detail of the plants you are working with.

Price includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
