PRINTING W/PLANTS


Course is 2 Hours- $90

A botanical dye class focusing on those plants that are either native to Southern California, can be foraged, found or grown easily in our climate. The course will focus on simple ways to create prints on fabric using regionally available flowers, roots, and fruits.

-Students will learn about which bio-regional plants give color, how to process /prep fibers for wash/lightfast results. Focus will be on giving students the skills to work on their own, identify “tried and true” plant dyes, and how to use minimal water.

I will take students through the process of:

-Hapazome (pounding plants into fabric)

-Bundle Dyeing techniques

-Steaming color into the fabric for lasting color

*Students will leave with their own hand-dyed, hemp or silk Furoshiki Wrap
