Eco-printing refers to the act of using plant materials to apply color and designs to textiles and paper. You will leave this workshop with 1 hand-rolled Design scarves,bag or apron  that you have eco-printed yourself. You will be given handouts and plenty of information so you can continue to make your own eco-printed scarves at home. We will look at, and discuss, how to use this process on other fabrics and papers, and you will be given reference material for your own ongoing exploration.

During our workshop we’ll discuss and work through:

  • preparation of the silk and paper for eco-printing
  • plant material selection and preparation
  • how to continue eco-printing at home, without the need for fancy equipment

What is eco-printing?

At its core, eco-printing is the act of directly applying botanical elements (leaves, bark, flowers) to textiles and paper to alter and/or apply colour and ‘print’ impressions of the botanical material on to the textile or paper surface. Eco-dyeing can be a component of eco-printing, but it is not the same. The ‘eco’ reference in both applications is the fact that natural materials are used to achieve the results. By natural I mean leaves, bark, flowers, roots and stems.
