I run and teach workshops focusing on material making and research, plant based dyes and printmaking. Please get in touch if you would like to arrange a one - to - one or group workshop.
Below is an example of the workshops I can offer as well as tailoring bespoke content to suit your needs.
Intro to Biomaterials
An introduction to what a biomaterial is, responsible biomaterial making and understanding resource use and working with waste, creating your own algae based bioplastics and composite biomaterials
Intro to plant dyes
learn about fibre selection, mordanting, making dye baths from locally sourced dye plants and organic waste and using modifiers
Eco printing and Hapazome
This is a fast and fun way to engage with plant dyes, working with bundle dyeing and the hammering technique to transfer plant colour onto fibre
Material Library session
In this library session we will explore what a material is, identifying and classifying material categories as well as looking at historial materials compare to today's future materials
Printing with plant dyes
Working with plant based dyes, lake pigments and biobinders to screenprint and relief print on fabric
Working with linocut and woodblock to create repeat prints on both paper and fabric
