Workshop Description:  Learn how to imprint beautiful Plant designs from Nature and create a background in rich color on silk and wool ! Ecoprinting (also known as botanical printing) involves collecting leaves, plants and flowers to imprint their images directly upon protein fibers using the process you learn in the workshop.

At the end of the day, students will take home both a silk and wool scarf sample ecoprinted in color and the knowledge to continue Ecoprinting from Nature's resources.
