09. Painted Natural Landscapes – 21st September


Out of stock


In this workshop you will use fabric paint made up from the woad and weld plant to create the colours blue and yellow. Both of these plants have been used for dyeing for over 500 years. Angela will teach you how to paint your very own unique landscape using a variety of paint and print techniques including traditional India wooden stamps. You will combine these two colours to make green, often know as Lincoln Green to further print onto your work. Using white fabric paint in the sky helps to create movement by suggesting clouds. You will be able to choose one large landscape or work on two smaller ones. The workshop begins by you painting and printing onto the white cotton to transform it into a landscape and ends with you layering up your work onto wadding before starting the stitching guided by Angela. Angela will teach you how to set your paint colours so that they can be washed in the future if needed. This workshop is suitable for all levels and all resources are included. You might find it useful to bring an apron and rubber gloves to this workshop.

This workshop takes place from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

Lunch is not included, but there is a cafe on site.
