Eco Printing is a form of natural dyeing where plant materials are bundled and use a direct contact printing method, drawing out pigments from plants to make interesting and surprising marks on protein (silk, wool) fibers which are transferred to fabric via steaming. Two for one bundling is a favorite technique. Learn how to make an iron blanket which dramatically changes and deepens the colors of the printed leaves. You will learn to make a bundle with a silk scarf using eucalyptus, oak, maple and some various leaves with high tannins. You are also encouraged to bring your own plant material to dye with, such as marigolds or cosmos.
