Eco-Printing is the process of embedding botanical “stamps” directly from plant material.
Working with natural elements such as leaves, blossoms, berries, eucalyptus, flower petals, vegetables, fruit, nuts, and bark, collected from your own garden and all around you, each artist will create a naturally made silk scarf or cotton bandanna. The “images” and color that will be embodied within the fabric will reflect the actual color that the plant material transfers.
The unique and sought-after class will begin with an introduction to the process given by local artist Kathleen Lang, and our very own artist on site, Dana Caro, who works with Kathy as a designer for her line of wearable eco-prints. This will be followed by a nature walk to collect botanical items for use in printing/dying. Using no chemicals or additives, each artist will then learn how to use the plant material to decorate their fabric item.
No experience is necessary, but imagination is preferred.
The date is TENTATIVE and subject to change as we finalize details.
