Eco-printing

Anna Meier class 3.JPG

Learn how to coax the pigment from a variety of leaves to create beautiful prints on silk and wool scarves. This course will cover the basics of eco-printing from pre-mordanting your fabric, to plant selection, how to roll or fold for optimal prints, steaming vs. boiling, and more. Come and experience the magic of the reveal, unbundling your scarf to reveal anywhere from the coral red shades left by eucalyptus leaves, the pale pink of Japanese maple, or the black tinged prints from leaves dipped in iron. This class will have you heading for the thrift store to buy your own steamer!
