Unintended Consequences: Eco printing workshop led by Natalie Linney

Sat 23rd July, 13:00 - 16:00

A workshop exploring sustainable methods of printing using natural materials is taking place at Quarry Bank this summer

As part of the Unintended Consequences programme at Quarry Bank National Park, FutureEverything, in partnership with the National Trust, have curated a season of special maker-led activities and workshops for visitors to Quarry Bank Mill.

Explore our native colours in this eco printing workshop led by Natalie Linney the Founder of Talie Linseed. The ancient method looks to science to explain how to create and fix a traditional colour palette used before synthetic dyes were invented. During the day you will create your own silk scarf and gain an understanding of the eco printing process. This workshop will teach you all you need to know to get started on your own prints at home.

The workshop is suitable for beginners aged 16+ and materials will be provided.

Registration for this workshop is now open! Click bellow to sign up.

Unintended Consequences

Unintended Consequences is a programme of activity exploring the impact of the industrial revolution through stories of environmental change present within the Quarry Bank landscape. Through a series of participatory events, the project is inviting us to consider what we can do to create a more sustainable future.

The Unintended Consequence workshops will run in parallel to Gathering Downstreaman installation created by artist Jen Southern and produced by FutureEverything which launched at Quarry Bank in May 2022.The artwork explores the legacy of the Industrial Revolution and its, often exploitative, impact on the landscape and people. It gathers together the movement of plants, rocks, people and machines, through their relationship to water. From the river and damp air that brought both mossy abundance and the cotton mill to Quarry Bank, to the drought and flooding that are two of the biggest global impacts of the climate crisis.

The installation will be on display until November 25th, 2022.
