Learn to Eco-Print
for a day filled with beauty, friends, and plants.
I will teach you the basics of eco-printing and you will create and take home your own eco-printed silk scarf. I will also share ways to help develop our connection with the spirit medicine of plants.
I will provide the plants, pre-mordanted silk, and everything you need to create your own eco-print scarf. You bring your own lunch and you are welcome to bring any special plants you may be excited about using from your gardens, though this is not necessary to bring plants.
Cost is $150
