The Art of Science: Eco Printing Workshop

June 30, 2018 @ 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

$35 – $45

This workshop will focus on how to print on fabric and paper using the natural dyes found in leaves. Fabric artist Sharon Richards will introduce participants to the art of using the natural chemistry of the plants to create beautiful prints celebrating the leaf’s structure and shape.

The morning will begin with an introduction to techniques and a first dying session with fabric. Students will use leaves that are provided and that have a high amount of tannin. Then, while those projects steam, the class will join  Susan Lamb for a botany talk and a walk through the Willow Bend gardens and natural areas watching for interesting leaf shapes and plant growth. After the nature tour, Sharon will teach participants how to apply their new knowledge to also make beautiful leaf prints on paper.

Limited Spots. Sign-Up required!
