About the event
Eco Printing is a form of natural dyeing where plant materials are bundled and use a direct contact printing method, drawing out pigments from plants to make interesting and surprising marks on cellulose (cotton, linen) and protein (silk, wool) fibers which are transferred to paper or fabric via steaming or heat press. Two for one bundling is a favorite technique. Learn how to make an iron blanket, which dramatically changes and deepens the colors of the printed leaves. In this class, you will learn to make a bundle with silk scarves. We will use eucalyptus, oak, maple and some various leaves for our bundles. These will steam for an hour or so while we make some eco prints on paper.
