Botanical Alchemy

Botanical Alchemy

with Charlotte Van Hauen

apricot trees exist, apricot trees exist;

bracken exists; and blackberries, blackberries; bromine exists; and hydrogen, hydrogen

Inger Christensen

2-4 July 2021

Charlotte Van Hauen (textile and costume designer from Denmark's Design School) will introduce us to a technique called Eco-print: print on textile with plant and flower own colour, structure and forms; one plant = one print. The technique is closely related to plant dye.

The focus of this weekend will be an immersive contemplation of nature through the experience of botanical alchemy.

See @favresansen on Instagram for examples of ecoprints from Charlotte van Hauen.

Price: 1600kr (food, materials and basic costs)
