Nature's Alchemy: Eco-print Workshop

Discover the magic of Eco-print and dye your own silk and wool scarves in this full day immersion. 

Eco-print (or close-contact printing) is an alchemical process that uses leaves and other vegetable matter along with paper, silk, wool or cotton to create beautiful prints. Eco-printed materials can be worn or developed into a range of artistic expressions. The process offers opportunities for personal reflection and inquiry into lived experience.

In this interactive and hands on full day workshop you will:

  • Deepen your connection to the natural world and the eco-print materials through mindfulness and nature connection practices.
  • Take your time, slow down and open your senses to the beauty of spring.
  • Learn the basic method of eco-print and experiment with eco-printing different materials (paper, silk and wool). 
  • Engage in song, journaling, photography or clay work by the campfire.
  • Take time to unravel your eco-print bundles in small groups, noticing the outcomes of your experiments. 

Please bring your journal, a plate of vegetarian food to share, and your curiosity! 

Basic materials will be provided. You are welcome to contribute natural materials including: onion skins, purple cabbage, purple carrot, and/or eucalyptus, rose, plum, maple leaves, etc.
