Skill level:  Beginner

Workshop Description:  Learn how to eco-print on silk and wool!  Eco-printing (also known as botanical printing) is a natural, sustainable art form that involves collecting leaves, plants and flowers to imprint their images directly upon protein fibers using a water bath process.  Students will learn techniques to create beautiful, natural designs with colors drawn directly from nature.  At the end of the day, students will take home both silk and wool eco-printed scarves; and, the knowledge to continue Eco-printing from nature's resources.

Participants should bring:  Students should bring leaves from their area with emphasis on high tannin leaves such as oak, maples, rose, hickory, sumac and interesting weeds. Fun additional plants (usually store bought) are eucalyptus and colorful flowers such as carnations, gerber daises. No thick plants. Also a 1 gallon water jug to use as a weight (can be filled at class)

Material Fee: $30  1 Merino wool scarf and 1 silk scarf, a few leaves, use of materials and equipment for dye process.

Class Limit:  12
