Eco-dyeing silk scarves workshop
September 29 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$120 – $130
Botanical printing uses historical methods to capture colors, textures, and shapes found in nature – resulting in stunning plant portraits on fabric. Leaves are layered onto natural fabrics, tightly bundled, then steamed or boiled. This environmentally gentle process permanently transfers botanical pigments without synthetic dyes, inks or paints.
Textile artist Anna Zell will lead participants step-by-step through the eco-printing process. At the end of the day, attendees take home their own eco-printed silk noil and either crepe de chine or charmeuse silk scarf and also will be given a dyeing kit and the knowledge to make more.
