Ecoprinting on Silk + Wool

Workshop Details

Schedule: Sat 1:45p – 3:45
Length: 2.5 Hours
Ticket: $138

Description: Ecoprinting is the use of natural materials to leave two dimensional impressions upon media by employing pressure and heat and chemistry. We can reveal details in the veining of leaves, soothing colors from petals and stems, and fanciful collages invoking the beauty of the world around us. In this workshop we will arrange pre-prepared materials to coax color onto silk scarves, creating one of a kind wearables, in addition to treating wool yarns with similar methods to make surprising and exciting skeins for your fiber arts projects. All dyeing materials are regionally sourced and through the tutelage of Tammy White, your natural dye instructor, you will be able to answer questions of how to get a variety of lasting colors on your work.

*Workshop ticketing will include an additional $1, as a donation to the Arts Council of Wyoming County. This donation supports rural arts and artists working in your communities. This donation will be added to your transaction at checkout and is non-refundable. Thank for being a patron of the arts!
