Workshop (Lecture, Nature Walk, Make and Take):
Botanical Printing and Dyeing
Sunday, October 16th, 2022
10:00am – 3:00pm
optional box lunch available for $20.00
Botanical natural dyeing is the process of embedding botanical “stamps” directly from plant material into fabric or paper. Working with natural elements such as leaves, blossoms, berries, vegetables and bark, you will design and dye your own silk scarf. As you are waiting for the materials to process, the instructor will guide you on a nature walk to discuss the dyeing characteristics of different types of natural materials. Students are encouraged to collect and flatten botanicals prior to the workshop. We will break for lunch. (Feel free to pack a lunch or an optional preordered box lunch is available.)
