Rock Bay Market, 2725 Rock Bay Ave, Victoria, Canada
Join Carly of Lorelei Textile Design as she leads you through a beginner friendly workshop exploring the art of eco printing on cloth!
In this workshop we will cover:
What IS eco printing?
Fibres suitable for eco printing and how to identify them
How to prepare your fibres for receiving and retaining colour
Common and beloved plants used in the process
Ethical wild harvesting practices
Dye garden essentials
A show and tell of past work to give inspiration and spark curious questions
Instructional booklet full of resources and information for further exploration at home
All of this while engaging in an afternoon of plant infused play with a lovely community of inquisitive minds!
Attendees will be provided with a handmade and upcycled bandana and a set of 2 vintage hankies to explore different techniques and applications of eco printing. All foliage and flowers are provided but if there is something you've spotted growing around home that you'd like to experiment with let's test it out!
Vegan/gluten free snacks and iced herbal tea are provided as complimentary refreshments throughout the day!
