Botanical Printing on Cotton Fabric – PROCESS

June 21 @ 10:15 am - 3:00 pm

Botanical printing is a process that captures the natural beauty of leaves and flowers that grow around us. Natural fabrics such as cotton.

This workshop builds on the Botanical Printing with Natural Plant Dyes workshop, it is the process of Botanical Printing using dye ‘blankets’, one of many different techniques that can be used. This is the complete process from start to finish, taking participants through the process of preparing cotton fabric with mordants, making a botanical dye bath and botanically print using natural foliage and flowers from the garden to create beautiful, naturally dyed and printed cloth.

Participants will take away two pieces of fabric they have botanically dyed and printed, that can be used for sewing small projects (cushion, bag, wall hanging etc) and a leaflet setting out the process they have used during the day. While it is useful for participants to have previously taken the Botanical Printing with Natural Plant Dyes workshop, it is not a pre-requisite.

Pam Tresise is a weaver, spins her own yarns and dyes natural fibres using botanical dyes. She has a garden studio which looks out onto a variety of plants she grows for dyeing and which inspire her work. Pam’s work can be found under @The Dusty Cat Studio on Instagram and also on Facebook.
