Eco Printing with Natural Dyes
October 22 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us at the Farm Store at Dry Creek, on Sunday, October 22nd, for an exclusive experience that intertwines art and nature. Guests of this workshop will discover the captivating world of eco-printing with seasoned artisans Rose Killian and Heather Law, as they guide you through this natural and sustainable dyeing technique. Harvested botanicals, such as leaves, petals, and natural pigments will be used to craft exquisite patterns that embody the essence of the farm and the surrounding Dry Creek Valley.
Explore the process of capturing nature’s fleeting beauty onto silk and wool fabrics resulting in patterns reminiscent of watercolor washes and intricate leaf impressions. This immersive afternoon will awaken your creativity as we transfer plant pigments onto organic textiles through careful manipulation and alchemical exploration. Students will leave with a one-of-a-kind scarf of their own making and enjoy refreshments from the SingleThread kitchen.
