During this 5 day eco printing extravaganza participants of every ability will have the opportunity to learn new techniques or fine tune their skills in a fun and supportive environment. 

Working in a health conscious and environmentally friendly way (without the use of powered chemical mordants) discover how Nicola achieves lasting colour and consistent prints on both protein and cellulose fabrics. Learn tips and tricks during the workshop which will ensure you achieve excellent, repeatable results once back home in your own studio. 

This workshop will also cover printing on paper and introduce participants to Symplocos as a natural plant based mordant.

ABOUT Nicola:

Since her introduction to textiles in 2007 Nicola Brown has studied extensively in Ireland, Europe and the US to learn new techniques and develop her fine art textile practice. As a mature student, Nicola choose not to go down the traditional art college route but instead attends technique specific workshops, masterclasses and symposia with international tutors whose work she admires, this is an ongoing process. Her current practice explores the use of eco printing to impart colour directly from organic materials onto silk, wool and handmade felt.

Nicola also delivers regular felting and eco printing workshops in Ireland, Northern Ireland, the US, Canada and Portugal
