Eco Printing produces unique and beautiful fabrics
The cost is $65. This includes a $15 required kit. This 3 hour class will thoroughly acquaint you with dyeing with plants to create your own special prints.
Since there is quite a bit of time involved in the initial dyeing step, the instructor will pre-dye muslin fabric in red, yellow, and blue using natural materials. But you will learn all the steps involved to properly prepare your own muslin.
In the class these pre-dyed fabrics will be transformed using plants provided by the instructor, along with some options you could bring from home such as sumac, oak, maple, and smoke bush.
