When: Sat., Aug. 13, 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. 2016
In this hands-on workshop using local botanicals, students will learn to transfer leaf and seed prints onto cotton and silk with a technique called Eco Printing. We will also be experimenting with two Shibori techniques—Itajime and Kanoko—using natural seasonal mushroom or plant dyes on silk. All plants and dyes will be provided, and every student will be supplied with two silk scarves. We encourage up-cycling: you are welcome to bring around 10 ounces of white 100% silk or cotton clothing from thrift stores or the back of your closet to use as well.
