    Eco Printing on Silk and Wool 

    Feb 22, 2015 12:30 -5 pm 

    Learn the essence of printing local plants onto silk and wool. (Cotton and linen require different treatment and not taught in half day workshop) In this workshop you will learn how to properly bundle and tie fabrics as a preparation to eco printing. Two methods of creating eco prints will be presented and opportunities to use both. No experience necessary, just a willingness to experiment and enjoy the surprises. Some hand strength is needed to create bundles. While the bundles are steaming and boiling we will identify suitable botanicals for eco printing. During the processing of the bundles a discussion of mordants will be explained. This workshop is designed to learn essentials to carry out on your own printing at home.

    Cost: $55.00 for Guild Members (Guild has paid $10 towards the original cost)

    $80 for Non-members ($65 + $15)  

    What to bring:

    • Large ball of cotton string. This needs to be strong enough that cannot be snapped when making bundles.
    • 6 sticks/branches found in your yard. Please no sticks from pine trees They should be only 8 -10” long, about ½” in diameter, and fairly straight. Oak trees make nice sticks.
    • Buttons or beads to attach to your bundle to identify your work. The bundles will all look alike in the steam pots.
    • Sharp pointed scissors to cut the bundle string or fabrics
    • Small spray bottle.
    • Rubber gloves if you do not want to have stained fingers
    • Plastic shoe box/container to hold leaves for your use
    • Kathy will provide all mordanted fabrics and plant material for these projects. She will also have some wool for purchase at nominal fee.
    Contact Michelle Held to sign up.  Workshop is limited to 12- 15 people.  You must have paid before you arrive.  Kathy will not have supplies for walk ins.
