Class Description

The Eco-Printed Garment

This workshop combines the talents of Mary Sue Fenner and Lisa Binkley to help you create your very own Eco-Printed Garment.

During this five-day workshop students will work with Mary Sue to select and fit the perfect top or vest pattern and ready fabrics to print and dye with botanicals.  Lisa will teach students 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.  Students will gather many of their printing and dyeing plants from the woodlands surrounding our retreat. Botanical printing will be limited to the first three days of the workshop, The balance of time will be devoted to finishing garments.

As the week progresses Mary Sue will assist students with garment construction.  Lisa will share ideas for stitching and embellishing garments.

Because this is a new collaboration, garment samples are not yet available.
