Botanically EcoDye Silk Scarves

Sun Apr 28 - 9:00am-4:00pm

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 you step-by-step through the eco-printing process. At the end of the day, you’ll take home your own eco-printed silk noil and either crepe de chine or charmeuse silk scarf. You’ll have the knowledge to make more for yourself or as spectacular gifts for others. (See Anna’s work at www.facebook.com/annazelldesigns.
