Eco Printing with Amy Lou Stein

Backyard Bundles:  Eco printing with Amy Lou Stein.  Sunday, September 9, 2018.  10 AM-5:00 PM.  $120.00.  $50.00 deposit holds your space.  Class includes all materials (dyes, fabric, etc).  Snacks, water and tea provided.  Microwave and refrigerator available, plus take out from local restaurants.  All levels welcome (ages 13+ to adult). 

Eco-printing is a technique developed by Australian dyer India Flint, which involves bundling leaves in cloth or felt and then steaming or dyeing the bundles in a plant based dye vat.  Natural dyeing in this way inspires us to care for where our clothes came from and where they will travel to, and how we, as people, can lessen our footprint with textiles.

Students will make beautiful printed fabric from foraged and discarded flowers and leaves.  We will press, wrap, tie, steam and cook--petals, leaves, metals, fabric & bark. Bring a special rock, twig, metal object, button or other small item to add to your bundle. We will talk about "no-impact" dyeing methods and how to re-use, re-purpose and alter existing garments. We will have a class discussion about fibers, mordanting, foraging and safety.
