What a wonderful workshop I have had this week at Art van go with Eco-printer Fabienne Dorsman-Rey . Fabienne knowledge ,generosity and enthusiasm was exceptional. I went to explore how I could use Eco-printing in my felt making and have come away inspired to learn more about my local plants and their properties and to continue my voyage of discovery into natural dyeing incorporating Eco-printing.
In very difficult to describe in words everything that happened during the workshop , but we learnt about wrapping a bundle, mordants and modifiers , the effects of metals and plants that can be used for printing. We also were shown some of Fabienne’s beautiful work and the stories behind each piece.
Just a taste of some of the beautiful prints made.
