This course is suitable for anyone who has done an introductory course and they’d like to extend their practice. It can be taken as a follow on from Saturday or as a stand alone. We will be using several ways to ecoprint, exploring ways to get different tones from plant dyes, and seeing how different silks take prints and dyes.
All materials are provided.
The courses are set in a very beautiful place, near Builth Wells, mid Wales. Fiona is the most generous of hosts, and makes the best cakes ever!
