Eco Printing is a stunning dye technique that is true to its name. It is environmentally friendly and works like a dye print in which the image and energy of the dye plants are transferred directly to the textile. You’ll learn to work with wild harvested plant materials (leaves, flowers, bark, etc.) to eco print in a beautiful and expressive way. We’ll use this magical technique to make living, breathing textiles that have personal meaning and are deeply connected to the places we each call home. You’ll finish class with a silky merino loop scarf of your own design, and a couple of pure silk pieces that can be worn as scarves or used around your home as an altar cloth, etc.
We will have a potluck lunch, giving everyone time to socialize with the instructor and fellow students.
