A chance to see a demonstration of Eco Printing in the Beautiful Kibble Palace with artist Elisabeth Viguie Culshaw from The Lansdowne House of Stencils.
The Glasgow Botanic Garden dating 1817 offers the visitors a wonderful tree trail to view the unique tree collection and a magnificent Kibble Palace erected in 1873 by John Kibble a Scottish Engineer. This is one of the most favourite venues of the Glasgow West end.
Eco Printing is a natural printing technique where botanical material is used create a pattern on paper or fabric by transferring natural pigment/tannin through close contact.
We will spend two hours experimenting the technique of Eco Printing in the Kibble Palace using the botanical material harvested in the Botanical garden. We will take a short walk around the garden to identify the trees giving the best leaves used for the technique.... and marvel at the result.
