14 Jan Who am I and what am I passionate about?
Hi everyone, greetings from rural Ireland. My name is Nicola Brown and three words describe what I do; simple, natural, crafted.
In essence I use leaves, bark, seed pods and onion skins to create lasting print and colour on handmade felt, natural fabrics and up-cycled clothing without using powdered mordants, the traditional metal salts used to fix colour on textiles. I am passionate about sharing these skills with others in person (when possible) and via online workshops and social media. During 2021 I started to develop my own YouTube channel and in December launched a successful eBook about eco printing in the ‘dirty pot’. Currently I am developing a new membership programme for eco printers and wet felters, the beta launch will start with a free bootcamp on 31st January so keep your eyes open!
