Learn how to create striking prints on silk scarves using beautiful fall leaves! This hands-on class will cover the basics of eco-printing from mordant choices to plant selection; how to roll or fold for optimal prints; steaming versus boiling and more. Come and experience the magic of nature’s colorful designs to reveal anywhere from the coral red shades left by eucalyptus leaves, the pale pink of Japanese maple, or the black tinged prints left from leaves dipped in iron. You will eco-print on two silk scarves to take home for your enjoyment or give as beautifully handcrafted gifts.
