What I learned

by Jennifer

Kathy is probably the most knowledgeable person in the world on eco & botanical dyeing. Her instructions are detailed and provide technical information to take the guess work out of your projects. After her class you can confidently predict the outcomes of your project. No more guesswork!

Is this course right for me?

Who SHOULD Enroll in this course? Who should NOT enroll in this course?
Anyone who wants deeper knowledge of the art form. If you are looking for specific techniques (these are taught in my other online courses)
Those who are tired of wasting fabrics, time and getting poor results.
Anyone who is happy with whatever outcome.
Those seeking consistent results. If you are totally accomplished with Eco/Botanical Printing.

Anyone looking for deeper understanding of natural dyes and and how they work with botanical printing. A hobbyist who does not mind failures.
Those who know a bit about Eco Printing, but need foundational skills. Not interested in advancing.

My first botanical printing workshops were in Florida with Kathy in person, clear, concise, informative. Since that time, I have taken her on line instruction, with The Inner Circle being the most recent. Definitely a skills builder, with that same clear and informative presentation. Do it!
