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.
