Eco Dyeing (also called leaf print or eco print) is a direct contact dye method drawing out pigments from leaves into fabric. In this workshop you will learn about how to successful eco dye on silk. We will go for a short walk around the park to collect some plant material, which we will then use to create our silk bundles. Let’s get wild!
You will learn:
- about plants and fabrics
- mordant techniques
- different bundle techniques
Included in the workshop fee are materials for testing and exploring, one silk scarf (medium size) and a handout with mordant recipes, dye plants, tips, sources etc. Tools and materials for the workshop are provided.
