Join Wendy for a unique introduction to the eco-printing experience! You will have the opportunity to forage leaves and bark from the many eucalypt species here at Beersheba Farm and then learn to wrap and “cook” the bundle to create your own one-of-a-kind eco-printed silk scarf!
There are also many other plants here at Beersheba Farm worthy of experimenting with and you are welcome to bring small natural fibre items (eg. scarves, fabric or yarn in wool, alpaca, silk, linen, cotton) as well.
Don’t miss out on your opportunity to learn this lovely technique.
(Side note: The Swanpool Motor Festival will be on just down the road….. in case a loved one requires an activity for the day also !)
Maximum of 10 places available.
