An Afternoon with Horticultural Therapy
Meeting 5: Eco-Printing
1.06.2022, 11 am

According to scientific research, working with plants is a very effective form of stress reduction. It boosts self-confidence and is a source of sensory stimulation. We invite you to a series of workshops during which plants will no serve just as a material for bouquets and flower arrangements, but will become an artistic medium used for creating simple graphics, paintings and photographs, etc. Classes for adults and children will be held at the same time, but in separate rooms. We provide materials, refreshments and an interpreter of Ukrainian and Russian.

Ecoprinting is a way of dyeing paper and fabrics with natural dyes extracted from plants. With the right preparation, a little luck and a lot of patience, we will be able to obtain not only different colored streaks and spots, but also beautiful floral and leafy patterns. While our mysterious concoction is going to soak up and bubble in the pot, we will embellish fabrics. We will use the power of our muscles, the variety of plant shapes and the wealth of natural pigments.

Participants: Women and children over 7 years old. Up to 10 adults per workshop.

Duration: 2h

Hosted by: Green Group Association
