Eco Printing on Silk Scarves and Paper

Workshop led by Lori Loftus
June 11, 10am-4pm • $100 + $30 materials fee

The steam method of eco dyeing is an excellent way to make delicate prints on fabric and paper.  Botanicals have their own natural pigments, which will transfer by using simple ingredients -- water, vinegar and heat -- the results are organic, amazing and beautiful.  We will eco dye with 100% silk scarves and various papers.

Artists are asked to bring an apron and scissors.  The following items are optional (Plastic gloves, knife, fresh flowers/herbs/leaves).  All other supplies are provided.

Lori Loftus lives in Saluda, North Carolina, and is a mixed media artist who loves to collect and print flora and fauna.  She has been a Nature Printing Society member since 2006, their secretary since 2011 and an annual workshop instructor.
