Course Details

Inspired by Autumn Leaves - Natural Printing and Stitching Autumn is the perfect time to experiment with natural processes using plants and fabric, and the leaves themselves are so inspiring with all their beautiful colours and shapes! Come and join me for six weeks of play and discovery in the studio, including some simple natural dying using tea and rust, making our own brushes from natural materials to mark and print fabric, and trying out some eco-printing using real leaves and flowers. In addition, we will be doing some fun gelli plate and mono printing, to build up a unique and beautiful stash of fabrics. We will then spend time using this to make some stitched collaged and appliquéd pieces of abstract autumnal leaves, cutting out simple shapes and considering negative space and composition. Observe the structure of leaves and practice stitching by either hand or machine, to enhance and compliment the fabric you have made. Note: Most materials will be supplied, but you will need to bring some additional small pieces of fabric to print on and some leaves from your local neighbourhood!
