    A new date for the Eco Print and Indigo 3 Day workshop was added. The demand in the Sept workshop spilled over to create another opportunity. This workshop will take place in Dunedin, Florida at the Dunedin Fine Art Center. If you missed out on the Sept class, here is another chance. To learn more and register click on this link.

    Here is the workshop description

    Eco Printing is contact printing of plants onto fabric. In this 3-day Eco Print workshop you will learn about plants, fabrics, equipment, processes and bundling techniques that create artful fabrics. Silk and wool fabrics are used because of their affinity for contact printing. While learning the printing process, emphasis will be placed on artful design and purposeful placement of the plant material. Instruction for making and using an indigo vat will be included along with ideas to enhance design. The techniques presented in this workshop are perfect for all fiber artists, feltmakers, dyers and art quilters who are seeking a new medium for personal expression. No experience necessary, just a willingness to experiment and enjoy the bounties of nature. Some hand strength is needed to create bundles and expect long periods of standing. This workshop is designed to learn the essentials, understand design and composition with plants to be carried out successfully at home. Students will take home several sample pieces as well as completed projects.
