Eco Printing 2022
October 9 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm
9:00am - 3:30pm
Join Earth Native Wilderness School in Cedar Creek, Texas to learn the native art form of eco printing.
Eco printing is an art in which plants and other natural elements are applied to a printable surface such as paper, clay or textiles to alter color, apply color or create designs. In this course, you will examine and try out traditional steam printing, hammered leaf techniques and cyanotype on textiles. We will explore natural dyes as a component, learning about aspects from harvesting plants, to mordants and binders. You will then use this knowledge to create your own prints incorporating flowers, leaves, bark and sunlight to make patterns reflective of the natural world.
Each participant will leave with their own creation, and hopefully the inspiration to continue their adventures in eco printing.
