Join us in exploring the art and science of eco-printing on paper. In the first session, we will discuss how natural dyes work, then each child will set up their own eco-print experiment with different paper and leaf variables.

In the second session, we will examine our cooked bundles to see what the natural dyes have done. We will compare the different variables and discuss which paper or leaves worked best. Each child will leave with the knowledge and experience to continue their own eco-printing explorations at home.

Louise is a local eco-print artist who runs a small business called Gumnut Magic. She sells eco-printed clothing and has written ebooks about eco-printing on cotton and paper. She loves introducing people to this magical process. See more of her work at
