In this natural dyes + screen printing workshop, we'll combine the production of natural dyes with the process of screen printing.

In the second part of the workshop you will apply the paints through screen printing, both on paper and fabric. 

No previous knowledge is required.

Practical exercise

In this potter's wheel workshop, the shape of the pieces is directly linked to the type of techniques we'll be covering and means that at the end* you'll take with you three pieces ready to use, i.e. fired and glazed.
