About the Event
Do you love nature? Learn to print using leaves, flowers, seed pods and other natural materials to create patterns on wool, silk, and cotton fabrics. This eco-printing evokes our Colorado outdoors. After learning the simple eco-printing techniques on cotton, silk and wool samples, you will create a larger surface design on the fabric type of your choice. You could create a silk scarf, a cotton fat-quarter/apron or a wool square for felting. In addition to using natural materials, the class will also use natural dyes. Carol will provide all the materials. Feel free to bring botanical materials to try. Fall is the time to collect! Best are leaves that have turned color, then dry flat between paper (newspaper works great). All of the materials are non-toxic and sustainable.
Materials Fee = $25. Please wear clothes that can get dirty and closed toe shoes. Apron to protect clothing. Leaves to try in printing. Best to collect ones that have turned fall colors. Collect leaves fresh or dry between newspaper.
