Ecoprint on Silk and Wool! Live - Online
Sat March 6: 12:00 PM-4:00 PM EST
Learn the basics of Ecoprinting on both silk and wool to create beautiful silk scarves designed by entirely by Nature! This is a LIVE, ONLINE workshop for the afternoon of Sat March 6..
This afternoon workshop is a perfect workshop for those new to the joys of Ecoprinting (Botanical printing) or those needing a better understanding of the basics.
I'll be sharing my techniques from plant selection and silk and wool choices to how to mordant, bundle and process your plants to create designs from the plant tannins on your scarves.
We will be using ZOOM for this live broadcast. If you do not have a ZOOM account, it is easy to set one up here: https://zoom.us/. It is free. I will be sending all participants an invite with a link and passcode a day beforehand in an email. It will be easier for you to work with your laptop or iPad so you can see what is going on more clearly. I will be online via ZOOM about 30 minutes prior to the workshop so you can pop on early to test your connections! All details will go out in the email.
What we will be doing:
We will be working on creating beautiful ecoprints on silk scarves using Nature's plants and flowers to create our designs and colors. We relying on the tannin in the leaves-no additional dyes. This where it all started! Basic and beautiful ecoprinting! Using my techniques you can go from ecoprinting on silk scarves to much larger projects on silk yardage!
Part of the challenge of a live workshop is making sure my students have everything ready to start!
Upon registration you will get a supply list of what you will need to have ready as well as a step by step worksheet of prep work so everyone is ready when we start!
Supplies: Most of the supplies we will use are already in your kitchen! What you may not have are 1 silk scarf and 1 wool and the 2 mordants we will use. But not to worry! I have a basic supply kit for my silk and wool classes (1 silk scarf, 1 wool plus 2 mordants) in my shop. You may choose to work on both silk or silk and wool if you would like!
Post Office deliveries have been slow so please don't wait till the last minute!
All students will receive an email upon registration with a list of any additional supplies needed. It is important to have all your supplies in hand before the workshop dates!
If you already have my 35 page PDF Tutorial on Ecoprinting on Silk and Wool, then you are probably aware of the supplies needed! If you do not have the Tutorial, and would like to have a written version rather than keep notes during the live broadcast, it is available HERE.
