About the event
Ecoprinting is one of my favourite natural dyeing techniques because it magically captures the direct print of the plant. In this workshop, you will get to ecoprint on fabric and paper while learning how to select the plants, pre-treat the fabric, and add texture.
We will work with locally available leaves that can be found abundantly in the Portuguese landscape. Each participant will dye and take home two fabric samples, two post cards, and an organic cotton tote bag. Additionally, you will take home a beautiful informational booklet with all the relevant information for you to continue ecoprinting from home.
The workshop will taught in English but any questions can be clarified in Portuguese.
9.30am-2pm (4 hours + 30 minutes break for lunch)
Please bring your own lunch or snack to eat during the break.
