July 28, 9:00-4:00 Leach Garden Manor House & Terrace
Botanical printing uses historical methods to capture colors, textures, and shapes found in nature – resulting in stunning plant portraits on fabric. Textile artist Anna Zell will lead you step-by-step through this environmentally gentle process that permanently transfers botanical pigments without synthetic dyes, inks or paints. You’ll take home your own eco-printed silk noil and a crepe de chine or charmeuse silk scarf, and you’ll have the knowledge to make more for yourself, or as spectacular gifts for others. Includes all silk fabric and dying supplies.
