Eco-printing is the technique of transferring the colour, shape, and details of plant material onto paper by using heat. With CZarina Lobo's guidance, we will experiment with different plant materials, learn which are best, make bundles in various ways, and end with stitching a beautiful booklet.

This family-friendly workshop will open up a whole world of creativity, as you can use the same techniques on other fibers.

The session will be recorded. Registered participants will have access to recordings for a limited time.
