Fibre art workshops

Gradually we're picking up and back to track.  Fibre arts workshops were held recently.   A botanical printing workshop for the family groups was held in 甲乙丙工作坊. As it's an introduction and for the fun of parents and kids participation I just taught the basic mordant printing on silk with those plants from wild and florist also kitchen waste, the onion skins.  In three hours laying, boiling and chatting they opened the bundles with unexpected outcome.  The photos speak themselves........


Onion skins, ferns, vegetable flowers.......
assorted eucalyptus...... with participants' own ideas of placing.
Leaves both sides will have different outcome.  See how the difference.
 Opening bundles is always excited.
Shades of orange and yellow from the same plant is interesting. It's effect of mordant.
Assorted eucalyptus from red, orange to brown.
The roaming cats.

Eucalyptus and rose leaves
The families are happy with their works.
 
The other day I have a family with children coming in my place for wool felt making and eco printing experiments.
It's their first time encountered wool felt.  They found it interesting with wool wrapped soap and wool can "stick" together.
  
They made the felted soaps and coasters.
Other than wool felting they made a small piece of eco printing.
Kids are imaginative.  Their works are nice.

In an afternoon of chatting, eating and playing with my cat Mogi, they made the colorful creation.

 Mogi is so adorable and quite welcome the kids even let them cuddling.
If you find the botanical printing interesting and like to know the making. My on line shop ETSY TerLing Creations  has instant download tutorial, basic one and enhanced one.
Thanks for stopping by and have a nice day.
