We are delighted to welcome Pauline Fraser to The Creative Chicken with her 'Botanical Silk Printing' workshop.


Botanical Printing on Silk


On this highly popular workshop you will learn the art of creating beautiful silk scarves covered in leaf prints. Make your own unique scarf either for yourself or as a gift. You will learn how to prepare silk and other fabrics so that they are ready to print, the types of leaves that make good prints, laying out your design on the silk, applying your choice of dyes through to completing the dyeing process and having your own piece of botanically printed silk that you can turn into a scarf or use on any other craft project.


All materials are provided, including a 45 x 180cm piece of silk which will be ready for you to work on. You will also receive handouts supporting you to carry on dyeing at home. Foliage will be provided and you are welcome to bring any leaves that you would like to include on your scarf (not waxy leaves such as laurel, ivy or holly as these will not print). Please bring an apron. Gloves will be provided.


Tuesday 10th September from 10am to 3.00pm


Cost including all materials £60


This class runs from 10am to 2.30pm (approx) Tea & Coffee provided but please bring a packed lunch
