Eco Print Dyeing - Day School

Eco print dyeing is a fascinating way of printing onto fabric. Using flowers and leaves from your own gardens, the surrounding countryside and the beautiful Denman College gardens in a direct contact printing method that gets them to give up their colours and patterns .

The summer will be the best time as the plants are full of vigour. You will be amazed at the effects and results you can get from sometimes the most mundane of plants. This is not a vegetable dyeing course but an exploration into the surprising and delighting effects that can be achieved just by wrapping plants in cloth.
