Botanical Dyeing Press workshop, Fodder and Farm

workshop attendees at Fodder and Farm

As part of the Love Letters to the Land exhibition at Fodder and Farm I was asked to teach workshops to some journalists and influencers, allowing them to have a go with my heat press and make botanical prints onto paper and fabric.

Here are a small number of the results which I think are amazing, especially as the activity was in-between goat milking and cocktail drinking.

There is more information on the process and mordants etc. that I am using to create these prints in The Studio Club private blog

Love Letters to the Land; Gartur Farm

This week I took part in the exhibition "Love Letters to the Land" at Fodder and Farm, Gartur Stitch Farm, Port of Menteith in the middle of Scotland.

I was showing with a couple of other artists whose work is inspired by the land - Eilidh Weir and Celia Ramon.

The exhibition was in an old barn - whitewashed walls with swallows swooping in though the large doors. I give a tour of my pieces in this video and Eilidh can be seen hanging hers in last week's blog post.
