20160310 Eco Print Natural Dyeing
Thursday, March 10, 2016 from 6:30-8:00pm
In this workshop you will learn how to naturally dye cotton in the Eco Print Method. Using a cauldron, steam, leaves, cotton, and iron you will transform a piece of fabric into a one of a kind piece of art. We will be using leaves Caitlin harvested in the autumn and has kept frozen- but we will also talk about places to source out plants year round!
You will go home with a naturally dyed piece of cotton thats approximately 38”X38”
