Eco-printing ecourses and ebooks by Louise Upshall

Welcome. I’m Louise, an artist and eco-printer living in the Blue Mountains of Australia.

I love teaching my methods of eco-printing, to help you get bright, clear prints more easily and joyfully.

I run workshops, teach online and I’m the author of several eco-printing ebooks about cotton, paper and leaves.

Through my ebooks and ecourses, you can learn to create your own wardrobe of living colour, using the natural dyes in plants.

New! Darning ecourse

My latest offering is Darn It. Learn how to mend small holes in your clothes with this darning ecourse. Darning is a traditional mending technique that uses a needle and yarn to fill in holes. In this short and sweet ecourse, you’ll learn the basic technique of darning holes, plus some ways to adapt this technique to trickier mends. Click here to learn more.

Also new: Round 2 of the Iso Dye Club

My most recent eco-print course is Round 2 of the Iso Dye Club. It includes lessons and videos about sewing, dyeing and eco-printing, to create four different garments plus variations. Click here to find out more.

Eco-printing ecourses

I have four more ecourses, which cover a range of mordants and binders, fabrics, leaves and natural dyes. Perfect for beginners or for anyone who wants to go a bit deeper with their eco-printing practise. Do an individual ecourse module, or buy all four in my Living Colour ecourse bundle.

“Louise’s course was my introduction to eco-printing and I’m so glad I did it! She carefully and clearly explained everything from the beginning and was hugely generous with her time and knowledge in answering questions and providing feedback. A whole range of basic skills and approaches were covered, and she’s given me the perfect springboard to carry on my eco-printing journey. Thanks so much Louise!”

“Very well structured eco dyeing course. Excellent videos that clearly demonstrate techniques and processes. I particularly found the tips about folding differently shaped garments useful. Louise is a generous, responsive and encouraging instructor. The course is very good value and provides virtually endless learning experiences and the chance to experiment and get feedback and comments from others doing it.”

Eco-printing ebooks

I have also written 3 ebooks about eco-printing on paper and cotton. Perfect for beginners or for anyone who learns best from reading. Buy an individual ebook, or get all three in the ebook bundle.

I hope you will be able to join our lovely community of eco-printers. I’d be delighted to help you to connect with plants and create beautiful, naturally dyed fabric and paper. And if you have any questions, please click here to contact me.
