No. The lessons in this module are taken straight from Living Colour. This module caters to anyone who is only interested in learning about soy milk binders specifically, rather than taking the full ecourse. I will slowly be releasing more modules from Living Colour, although it will remain better value to enrol in the full ecourse.
The main processes or techniques are taught through video lessons. There are also extensive written notes and photographs to supplement your learning. Through our private Facebook group, you will be part of an online community of people eco-printing on cotton. It’s a place to ask questions, learn from each other and celebrate your successes. Doing this as part of a group will also hold you accountable and keep you excited about doing each step. There is also email support if you need it.
It’s not secret that eucalyptus leaves are my favourite. But the video lessons of both courses cover a range of leaves for eco-printing, including maple, rose, blackberry and eucalyptus.
In the Living Colour ecourse, I also guide you in how to choose and test additional plants that might have eco-printing potential. And this course includes a free PDF of my ebook, The Leaf Guide: 25 plants for eco-printing on cotton.
These eco-printing techniques will work on any plant-based fibre, including cotton, linen and hemp, as well as semi-synthetic/ viscose fabrics such as rayon. The techniques will not work for petroleum based fibres like polyester, although nylon is an exception.
The Living Colour ecourse also briefly explores eco-printing on wool in week one, with a method that can also be used for silk.
There will be some overlap in content. But there is a lot of extra information covered, such as different mordants and binders, dye blankets and iron blankets, additional ways to fold bundles, and methods of combining eco-printing and shibori techniques on both wool and cotton. So if you would like to broaden your skills at eco-printing on cotton, or if you are the type of person who learns best from watching something demonstrated, this ecourse will be useful for you.
No, you will have continual access to the course material for as long as this ecourse exists, so you can work through it at your own pace.
