Plants contain a variety of natural pigments that can be printed directly onto fabrics in a technique called ecoprinting (also known as ‘contact dyeing’).

Join instructor Theresa Hornstein for this fun class! You’ll take a silk scarf, lay out a design in leaves and flowers, and learn how to roll it into a bundle. You’ll take your completed roll home to bake. The magic happens when you unroll your bundle the next day and discover your beautiful print. Once you learn the technique, you can create your own one-of-a-kind wardrobe!

Registration Includes

Instruction and all materials. By the end of class, you’ll go home with a scarf bundle ready to be baked in the oven to complete the process.
