Eco Printing – Renata Britez
July 23 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$89.00 – $119.00
Get to know the colourful bounty of Maritimes flora by working with fresh plants foraged by Natural Dyer Renata Britez. Natural dyeing can be fun, but the experience of using seasonal and regionally relevant plants, as opposed to pre-extracted and imported powders, provides a real connection to this age-old process. Participants will come away with an understanding of natural dyeing with fresh raw dye surface design techniques. Each participant will have sample swatches in various sustainable fibres, a finished silk scarf dyed with local colour, as well as informational handouts on how to repeat the process at home with local plants.
