Eco-Printing on Paper Natural Dye Taster Workshop
Ballitore, Co. Kildare
6 August - 8 October 2022
Discover how to create natural dyes and inks and create your own natural, botanical art print using leaves and flowers foraged sustainably in Ireland’s Ancient East.

Capture the colours of Kildare in natural dyes created from sustainably foraged plants and flowers at natural dye eco-printing workshops that combine exploration of Kildare’s lush landscapes with practical activities outdoors at the Blueway Art Studio.

You’ll learn traditional dyeing skills and experiment with using different natural dyes, intensities, and layouts on handmade Japanese papers. Whether you’re a beginner or looking to develop your dyeing techniques, an eco-printing workshop gives you a wonderful way to connect with traditions and skills handed down from our ancestors, as well as explore your own creative impulses.

The botanical prints you create will be yours to take home as a memento of your inspiring visit to Kildare!
