Eco Printing and Dying Textile Workshop

About Eco Printing and Dying Textile Workshop

Spread over three weekends, 12, 19 & 26 June, this comprehensive eco printing and dying course will take you through the processes of designing and carving your own lino block print and using it to print using iron dyes on fabric you have coloured with natural dyes. Learn how to prepare your fabric for dying in baths of natural substances such as madder, weld and indigo, and how to mix your eco printing inks, before creating a print on your own hand dyed Scottish silk hemp. You’ll come away from this course not only with a comprehensive understanding of a range of new processes, but also a beautifully printed envelope cushion that you have crafted from scratch with your own fair hands.

Tea, coffee and treats are provided but please bring your own lunch. All our workshops are suitable for participants of age 16 or over.

Stirling locals may be eligible for a free place on this workshop, please see the 'Subsidised Places' section of our website for full details.
