ECOPRINTING ON PAPER FOR ART UK PARTICIPANTS

This is an online workshop on the 21 November between 10 am and 12 noon UK time using the Zoom platform , it is safe and easy but you should have access to a smart phone or a computer/tablet before you book. No refund will be operated at anytime on the basis of lack of online equipment. You will be sent a link before the event to access it. Spend two hours learning how to create beautiful print on paper using botanical elements (leaves and flowers) and natural dyes you have access in your own kitchen… I have been an eco printer for many years and work regularly with paper as well as fabric… it gives me a chance to make some books… wrapping paper… cards… it is a simple process and always works… It is perfect to do with children and for beginners. If you live in the UK you will receive a starter pack allowing you to “have a go” synchronised to this online workshop. I am afraid that if you are overseas with the current Covid19 situation I will not be able to offer you the facility of a starter pack as it might never reach you. Instead upon receiving your booking I will send you a list of equipment you need.. trust me it is very little … You will receive a small discount on the price. You will be able to take part on the day using small rolls and paper I will send you ahead of the workshop (in the UK only)…. or just to view and take notes while having a go at a later stage. This will take place over a zoom link online and you will have the chance to ask direct questions as well as seeing the process in direct. I work in UK time (London time) but I have set up this event so participants from the USA can follow at a decent time After the event you will receive an emailed PDF with the basic instructions.
