Ricepaste print on silk workshop

Christine van der Heide will visit Clare Island on August 13, 14, 15 2017.
In this workshop we will make stencil prints on silk with ricepaste and dye with natural dyestuff. The technique is based on the Japanese Katazome method of printing. It is a resistprint. For the workshop I developed a simpler way of printing and we will use natural dyes of Clare Island for the colours.
