Eco printing is a special natural dye technique that involves pressing leaves and flowers directly onto the fabric, making an all-natural textile print. In this class you will learn how to prepare the cloth for dyeing, how to print on fabric, what plants work best and how to care for your naturally dyed items.
All materials provided. Leaves and flowers for printing will be mostly foraged in DC, and dependent upon seasonal availability. We'll be preserving the best of spring right on our fabrics!
You are welcome to bring anything from your wardrobe that is light in color and contains less than 50% synthetic content (all natural fibers are best).
Wear comfortable clothes you can get creative (and a little bit messy) in.
Hope to dye with you!
