Bring your sense of exploration for this fun-filled learnshop on printing with plants and natural dyes. You will create a unique silk scarf, and while we wait for the scarves to "cook" Carrole will show you another printing/dyeing medium. We will have a good selection of plant materials to work with.
- Apron, or old clothes
- Rubber gloves if you have some. I will have some "on hand" as well.
- Pair of scissors for plant material and paper
- Feel free to bring any plants from your garden, you would like to experiment with.Dark flowers such as dahlias, hollyhocks or roses are good choices.
- A notebook, if you are a note taker.
