Online workshops with Nicola

Eco printing basics using kitchen supplies  This workshop is designed for those who would like a simple but comprehensive step by step eco printing guide that will ensure excellent results from the safety and comfort of the home kitchen environment. If you have always wanted to learn a new technique without investing in specialised equipment this is the course for you!

‘Eco printing, an intensive foundation for successful results’ Over the course of a six week period Nicola shares with participants how she achieves clear, repeatable eco prints on protein based fabric (silk, wool, felt, cashmere etc.) and gives them the necessary skills to confidently do this time after time. From gathering the necessary tools and equipment to experimenting with different processing methods she will guide students beyond the basics and encourage them to experiment for themselves. Exciting extras include printing on paper, a simple method for printing on cellulose fabric (linen, ramie, cotton etc.) and an introduction to printing on up-cycled clothing. This workshop will empower the total beginner to have confidence in the process and be able to repeat their results when working by themselves. There should also be plenty of ‘ah ha’ moments for the more experienced eco printer too!

Group and bespoke workshops

Please email Nicola to discuss your requirements if you are interested in a bespoke workshop in Ireland or further afield. Her new purpose built studio cat Clasheen an comfortably accommodate groups of 6 to 8 participants depending on the workshop content and there are wonderful options locally for more upmarket residential courses. Classes may be organised in felting, eco printing or a combination of the two, new felting workshops include Upwolfing basics. Often dates don’t get added here to the workshop page although they do get offered through the online shop. The reason for this is because these intensive group classes often fill immediately so please contact Nicola if you don’t see anything advertised and would like to discuss possibilities for a future date. For workshops at Clasheen, simple shared accommodation may be organised on site or more glamorous accommodation is available locally. Collection and drop off to a bus or train is an optional added extra for those travelling without a car.
