Eco Print Dying with Caitlin fFrench on August 18th from 5:30-9 pm

105.00

In this workshop you will learn how to naturally dye both linen and silk in the Eco Print Method. Using a cauldron, steam, leaves, cotton, and mordants (iron and alum) you will transform fabric into a one of a kind piece of art. 

We will be using leaves Caitlin harvested in the autumn and has kept frozen, wildcrafted flowers, flowers she grew in her garden, and exotic dyes.

We will also talk about places to source out plants year round! 

 

Provided - Linen and silk to create one of a kind eco-print pieces of natural fibre art.
