Flora Print Picture

Flora Printing on Silk

Join the Creative Granary in  Norton Canon and create your own work of art with Flora Printing on Silk is a controlled craft, but no less enjoyable.

Vegetation will be collected from any of the gardens and hedgerows surrounding the workshop and then be dissected before reconstruction and printed onto pre-prepared silk fabric.

The fabric has been prepared with a binder.  Whilst it is unlikely that the picture will be washed, it still needs to be light fast and the binding is carried out in advance as it is very time consuming and can take several weeks to complete.

2022 planned dates – April 24 | May 15, 29| June 12, 26 | July 10, 24 | August 14, 28| September 11, 25October 9 

COST:  £48 per person to include refreshments, and home made cake, mid-afternoon.  Please advise of any dietary requirements or allergies when booking.  All tools, gloves and materials will be provided.

This course is for all those who are interested in creativity, families, groups, individuals, beginners and others alike.  However, because of the type of tool used in this instance, it is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18 years.

The Creative Granary offers a range of workshops for half days and two days, for Dyeing Fabric with Plants, Relief Printing, Flora Printing, Abstract Painting and Shibori. These are run from a converted nineteenth century granary on the farm where owner and teacher Mary lives in Norton Canon, rural Herefordshire.
