Learn how to harness the essence of this season’s colours, blending them harmoniously with the bold reds of Eucalyptus to craft stunning, unique sample prints.
Guided by Ewa Morawski, Ocean Studios’ printed textile resident artist, you’ll discover the secrets of botanical printing using Eucalyptus and autumn leaves. Ewa is an internationally renowned artist and textile designer. She graduated from UAL: Chelsea College of Art with wide experience of designing, specialising in free motion machine embroidery.
In her textile design practice, Ewa experiments, applies and utilises various techniques such as: drawing, printing, collage, mixed media, and assemblage.
In recent years she mastered the art of botanical printing on paper and fabric and had become a guru in this field. She is continuously developing new samples and testing new methods, materials and processes, practically like an ‘art scientist’ in the lab.
She is inspired by her locality, exploring visual experiences of nature, textures, weathered surfaces, patterns and rust.
The reoccurring subjects in her artwork are trees, leaves, landscape, and life cycle.
