Class Description: Eco Dyeing, Printing and Stitching

Dyeing with plant pigments has been practiced for as long as humans have made cloth and wished to beautify it. Printing with plants has been practiced for generations through such traditions as Easter egg adornment and in the past few decades as a way to adorn fabrics.

During this five-day workshop students learn about the history of dyeing and printing with plants; how to prepare fabric for dyeing and printing; ways to secure and alter dye color on cloth; and many ways to get patterns and images on fabric with plants.

During the first three days we will gather many of our printing and dyeing plants from the woodlands surrounding our retreat. Then we will focus on: dyeing solid and mottled colors with botanical pigments; printing plant material onto fabrics; printing and dyeing together; and using some shibori techniques in conjunction with eco printing and dyeing.

During the fourth and fifth days each student will learn and practice piecing, applique, and hand-stitching/quilting techniques well suited to these fabrics and then use her/his recently dyed fabrics to create an art quilt, art fabric panel, or yardage.
