WORKSHOPS

   

WORKSHOP

Eco-printing on Silk: If there is one class people are asking about, it is this! Eco dyeing or botanical printing involves the foraging and collecting of Nature's leaves, plants, fruit and flowers to begin a journey of preparation before emerging on the fiber in unique, all natural designs and colors drawn directly from the plant matter.  Like the journey of a butterfly, each piece undergoes its own personal dye transformation before emerging 2-5 days later in the beautiful colors of its metamorphosis. Each textile tells its own story.  That is what makes it such an exciting and unique art form.  I have streamlined this into a 1 day process for the benefit of a workshop. You'll collect the plants you'll use from my mini-farm or that I have dried and stored, learn how to prepare the silk and leave at the end of the session with 2 beautifully unique scarves! Totally renewable, sustainable art. All sessions are $145.00 for tuition and materials. Workshop limited to 6.
