Eco Printing- Scribbly Gum

Welcome to the world of eco printing. It really is one of the most unique forms of creating natural art. Using pieces of nature to create shapes, patterns and colours which reflect our natural world, it is definitely one of the most rewarding design processes. 

Eco printing or Eco dyeing is where plants and/or flowers are enclosed in natural fabrics such as silk, are rolled, bundled and tied onto a stick or stacked in layers. They are then steamed or immersed in hot water to extract the pigments and produce a beautiful print made with the plant dyes. Below is the method and resources used to create the "Scribbly Gum" print for the WIRES Wildlife Rescue project.
