Botanical Printmaking with Elisabeth Viguie-Culshaw
Join us for a fantastic botanical eco printing workshop with Elisabeth Viguie-Culshaw from The Lansdowne House. Botanical Printing is the natural technique of using floral and foliage elements to create colourful marks on paper and fabric using heat and humidity. In this one day workshop, we will learn the basics of Botanical Printing, get accustomed with material, mordanting and printing, using easy to obtain Natural dyes. We’ll start the morning by learning how to prepare our materials as our first botanical bundles go in the dying pots, and we’ll make mirror image prints onto fabrics. After a break for lunch in the garden, we will start to use the dye pots from earlier to create beautiful prints on both paper and fabrics in beautiful shades of green and blue.

Rya Weaving with Stephanie Fradette
Join us for a fantastic shaggy Rya weaving workshop with Stephanie Fradette, aka Le Petit Moose. Tapestry weaving has seen a great resurgence in interior designs of late, and Rya weaving is a great way to achieve a contemporary art piece for your home.

During the course of the day, we will begin by sketching your design then focus on maximising textures and finding our weaving rhythm whilst learning the fundamental techniques of warping your loom, knot variations and finishing techniques. This class is ideal for beginners, as no prior weaving experience is needed.
