Introduction to Eco Printing with Bonnee Pecquex

August 24 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm

$25 – $50

Botanical printing, also known as eco-printing, is an artistic technique that involves using plant materials to create unique and intricate patterns on fabric or paper. It is a natural and sustainable way to incorporate the beauty of nature into visual art. By carefully arranging leaves, flowers, and other plant parts on the surface of the material and applying pressure and heat, the pigments and tannins present in the plants are transferred, resulting in stunning, one-of-a-kind designs. This eco-friendly form of printing provides a connection to the natural world and allows for endless creative possibilities.

Come and learn this magical process and you will be forever ‘hooked’! There will be a brief lecture about the technique, and then each person will get an opportunity to make a silk scarf to take home with them.

Class fee – $50 plus material fee – $25
