Ecoprint on Paper with Amanda Duke

Thursday 5th September 2024 | 9:15am - 2:00pm

Ecoprint on Paper with Amanda Duke

You will be shown a fascinating way to transfer leaf forms to paper, making 15-20 Ecoprints. Local and familiar flowers and leaves will be used to make 15 – 20 contact prints revealing colour, texture, and pattern to your papers. You will learn the process of layering plants, applying mordants, clamping papers together, simmering your bundles in a pot and revealing your magical outcomes. You will be shown some ideas about what you can do next with your leaf prints. Once they have dried at home you can frame mount, stitch or collage with them. You will have sufficient knowledge and skill to get started with Eco printing at home, detailed notes will be sent to you after the course to help you along with this.
All materials are provided and Included in the course fee with sufficient paper stock and mordants. Other necessary printing materials including steam pots, foldback clips, clamps, steel plates, disposable gloves, will be supplied on the day. I will be collecting a number of dependable leaves to print from the Prairies and from my own garden and local hedgerows.
Self service coffee, tea, biscuits are included in the fee. Lovely cakes will be available to purchase in the café, you may wish to bring a sandwich or similar for lunch on the go.

price will be £90.
Suitable for beginners.

      Wonderful garden well worth a visit. Great variety of plants showing so many ways of portraying a garden layout. Must comment on the great tea and cakes selection, our dog loved the doggy ice cream!

      Beautifully planted area, in which you are encouraged to walk along paths between the plants so can be completely surrounded by foliage - a lovely effect.
