2-Day Intro to Eco Print Workshops

2-Day Intro to Eco Print Workshops

from 100.00

Come experience the magic that happens when Eco-Printing.

Eco Printing is a process of using plants to dye and print on fiber through contact printing methods

During our workshop’s; participants will explore the alchemy of water, plant materials, heat, and metal and finish the class with beautiful prints on natural fiber fabrics.

 In these workshop's we will be creating samples and experimenting with different fibers. We will be using natural plant materials gathered near my Florida home or brought with you from your garden. I will show you processes that have worked well for me and the equipment and bundling techniques that are used.

Be prepared for the wonderful smells that can only come from eucalyptus, and other natural leaves and be open to the magic
