Details

Spend a day in our idyllic studio in the woods and learn to create beautiful nature-inspired textiles using natural indigo dye and real leaves! In this workshop you will learn two ways of combining indigo dye with botanical printing, the art of creating permanent leaf prints using only the natural pigments in the leaves themselves. The beautiful, shimmering blues of indigo are the perfect compliment to the leaf prints.

In this workshop you will learn to create and use an indigo dye vat and also explore the art of shibori dyeing - a Japanese technique of creating patterns by folding and using objects as resists - while also learning the basics of botanical printing. This workshop covers more techniques than the Intro to Botanical Printing class, but is still suitable for beginners.

At the end of the day you will take home two 11 x 60 inch scarves that you have made yourself. You may choose between 100% silk or a silk/wool blend for each scarf. The workshop also includes complete descriptions of methods covered in class as well as additional information and sources for supplies.

Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided and enjoyed while our fabric bundles are "cooking."

This workshop includes:

  • all supplies necessary to create two silk scarves


  • handouts including instructions and a supply list so you can continue to practice this art at home


  • light lunch, coffee, tea


  • a fun, relaxed atmosphere to be creative and inspire each other
