Welcome to the School of Nomad Arts, where India Flint ( artist, author and the originator of the ecoprint* ) shares her knowledge of leaf printing and botanical alchemy, cutting and stitching, paper-folding and a little poetry
where, if you wish, you can join in while wearing your pyjamas and sailing your armchair on a voyage of learning and discovery.
There are a number of courses presently available :: the Alchemist’s Apron and Conscious Clothing as well as Free for the Bears (enrolment conditional on support for a charity that looks after bears) and Laundering Leafprints , a free class (so that you can decide whether you like the sound of the voice…)
If you’d like to gift a class to a friend, please contact me via email (click the wee letter icon at the bottom of this page).
Once enrolled, the courses are yours for life...like a good book, but with moving images and with someone who will answer your questions. Learn how to print leaves on cloth, how to make clothes that are both beautiful and comfortable, and how to make wee paper books to keep in your pockets or magical aprons from discarded shirts.
Find your tribe in the whirled, connect with them via the private groups created for each class and share your stories...
*the ecoprint is an ecologically sustainable contact print that transfers leaf dyes to cloth, clay, wood, stone or paper ; now widely adopted by makers in almost every country.
