ONSITE: Walk, Clip, Print: Ecoprinting on Fabric
In this one-day workshop, mindfulness, natural-dyes, and textiles collide to create a communal art-making experience. Students will be taken on a guided walk around The Fan District and learn how to identify plants that can be used for natural dying and eco-printing. Students will explore and create eco-prints on fabric, ink-transfer prints on fabric, and hammer/paint printing on fabric. Students will leave the class with knowledge of how to prep and dye fabric using plants (eco-printing), how to paint and ink-transfer/stamp with plants, and what to look for when searching for plants to naturally dye with.
- Please wash your fabrics in the washing machine (normal settings, warm water) and dry before bringing it to the workshop!
