Start Time/End Time:
San Diego Craft Collective
In this workshop, you will learn natural dyeing and eco printing. We will learn how to extract beautiful green color from rosemary and how to eco print with Eucalyptus to get strikingly bright orange leaf prints. Each participant will receive a large super soft non-itchy organic merino wool infinity scarf to dye. You will walk away with all the knowledge you need to use these two techniques independently of each other or combined like we will do in the workshop.
Eco-Printing is using local natural materials to print onto fabric. The result is so lovely. Eco printing is an absolutely magical technique, using heat and pressure to extract the pigment from a plant and achieve a permanent print on the fabric. Olesya usually uses this technique to upcycle unloved garments to give them new life and transform ordinary into wearable art. She encourages you to give this transformational and 100% natural technique a try. Guaranteed you will love it.
This class is appropriate for adults and teens age 15+
