Colour with Summer Leaves
Explore the printing potential of summer leaves and how to add colour, in the magical Grade II* listed Palm House, Sefton Park, Liverpool
About this event
Explore the printing potential of summer leaves in a relaxing and inspiring workshop in the magical environment of the Grade II* listed Palm House in Sefton Park, Liverpool.
Building on your knowledge of the principles and practice of botanical contact [‘eco’] printing, you will explore the printing potential of different summer leaves, and ways to enhance the definition and colour of your leaves and prints.
Whilst having fun in an enchanting environment, you will learn about differences between leaves and why they differ in their ability to make prints. Having printed some samples with different leaves and natural dyes, you will print at least one piece of silk large enough for a scarf, and at least one stack of papers.
There will be plenty of time for discussion and to soak up the lovely environment of the Palm House. Participant numbers for the workshop are restricted to maximise your experience and enable social distancing.
All materials [worth £20] are included in the workshop fee. There is a cafe at the Palm House where you can buy specialist teas and coffees, snacks and a light lunch [or you can bring your own].
