Eco-Printing
with guest instructor Blue Dog Natural Dye House

Do you already have some familiarity with botanical dyeing, perhaps through bundle dyeing or working with indigo? Then you may be ready to try the more precise method of eco-printing: "imprinting" the full flowers through steam onto fabric. This process takes some practice to get "exact" prints, but once you master it, it's fun to experiment with different dye flowers to see what happens!

Each workshop participant will forage in the beautiful South County Museum dye gardens for fresh flowers. Students will learn about the process of pre-treating fabrics for botanical dye and then get to dye a medium-sized cotton tote bag and a piece of silk using the picked flowers.

This workshop will review:
* The preparation process for botanically and naturally dyeing fabric
* The different dye flowers you can use and what types of results they may produce
* How to care for your naturally-dyed fabrics

All materials will be provided, including the pre-treated tote bag and silk, fresh flowers, and the pots, water, and heat source for steaming. All you need to bring is a curious mind and your creativity!

Other items to note:
* All workshops are in-person.
* This workshop will last approximately 3 hours. As projects steam and dye, you'll get to take a break.
* The workshop fee includes all materials. You do not need to bring anything.
* If you are seasonally allergic to flowers, please wear a mask.
