Botanical printing is a process that captures the natural beauty of leaves and flowers that grow around us. Selected leaves and flowers are arranged on prepared fabric or paper then rolled tightly and steamed or simmered to transfer the pigments from the foliage onto the fabric. Delicate prints of the leaves and flowers are left on the fabric or paper. Pam uses natural dyes to enhance this process.

This workshop is an introduction to the many techniques that can be used to create unique prints on fabric. During the day participants will learn how to prepare and print their own unique silk scarf.

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 facebook and Instagram.
