Eco-printing ecourses 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 ecourses, you can learn to create your own wardrobe of living colour, using the natural dyes in plants.
My full ecourse, Living Colour, is a comprehensive guide to eco-printing on cotton and other fibres. It covers a range of mordants and binders, leaves and natural dyes. It’s perfect for beginners or anyone who wants to go a bit deeper with their eco-printing practise.
Or if you just want to do some of the ecourse, I am also releasing smaller modules that cover a particular topic. The Soy Milk Binder Module is open for enrolments now, with more modules to come.
“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.”

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 garments. And if you have any questions about the ecourses, please click here to contact me.
