Event Details

Screen Shot 2018-06-20 at 6.36.32 PM

NB- this workshop starts at 9.30am and finishes at 11.30am.

After last term’s eco-printing on paper explorations, Louise is returning to share another natural dyeing method. Each child will create their own composition of leaves on woollen fabric. We will have a break while the bundles cook, and then come back together to open them up and see what colours and shapes have emerged.

Louise is a local eco-print artist who runs a small business called Gumnut Magic. She sells naturally dyed 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

Cost: $17 HEA members/$19 non-members
