Eco Printing – Natural Dyeing Workshop – Registration Required
In this full-day workshop participants will be exploring printing on fabric using natural dyes; flowers, roots, bark and leaves! Discover eco printing techniques; combining local plants with historical dyes. We will also be sampling flower pounding, discussing mordants, and finding a new use for rusty old items! In this full-day class, each participant will go home with a silk scarf and a flower pounded cotton tea towel, or a table runner.
