I’m Louise, the eco-printer and teacher behind Gumnut Magic. I’ve been eco-printing for about 7 years and have created and refined my own method for eco-printing on cotton. I’m the author of several eco-printing ebooks about cotton, paper and leaves. In the past few years I have also begun teaching my methods and have found such joy in this. But because I have no plans to travel internationally anytime soon, I decided to create this online learning platform.

Eco-printing is a practice that has given me so much.

A way to connect with the land around me.

A way to be creative that is earth-friendly and sustainable.

And the deep bliss and magic of unwrapping each fabric bundle to reveal the colours and textures left by those particular leaves.

I am delighted to be sharing this magic with you through the journey of Living Colour. May your bundles be beautiful and your heart nourished.
