In this new course, textiles artist Gina Mastio combines two of her
passions, felt making and eco plant dyeing in this creative two day
plant/natural fibres course. Perfect for beginners or more experienced
creatives of either medium, wishing to learn some of the wonders of natural
dyes from plants and how to make your own original textiles pieces.
Day one you will learn nuno
felting, combining silk with merino wool to form a unique nuno felt scarf. You
will then discover the eco printing technique, printing your scarf to your own
Day two you will make submersion
dyes from plant material and learn to felt over a plastic relief pattern to
create your own nuno felt cushion. These will then also be eco dyed with the
technique of your choice.
Further experiments with colour from the submersion dyes and eco
printing will also be done throughout the course - Two wonderfully creative
days to introduce you to some beautiful new techniques.
