During this workshop we will draw from nature’s wild and extravagant bounty to create unique patterning and surface designs on fabric. We will explore both eco-printing and shibori techniques using natural dyes such as mint, onion skins, and cochineal. You will come away from the weekend with a uniquely dyed scarf, numerous fabric samples, and inspiration for further experimentation! Maximum 10 students.  Students should bring to class
