Come connect with nature while creating fantastic textiles! You will learn several eco-printing techniques using different mordants as well as overdyeing your eco-prints. This workshop will be a deep dive into the Eco-Printing process, where you use plants, leaves, flowers and natural dyes to create shapes and marks on fabric. We will use many different flowers and natural materials to create a variety of outcomes. A partnership with a local flower farm will yield us flowers and leaves specifically planted for this workshop. We will take a short field trip there to pick out botanicals and then bring them back to the studio.

Workshops run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day
Lunch is included for all participants
