Introduction to Eco-Printing

Textiles, Class/Workshop

Create vivid patterns on fabric using foliage and other elements from nature. This simple, eco-friendly dyeing technique uses a direct contact printing method, drawing out pigments from plants to make interesting and sometimes surprising designs on fabric. Transform plain silk scarves into beautifully printed, one-of-a-kind pieces. You’ll go home with two silk scarves. Impact: Natural pigments from nature replace toxic dyes which may contain ingredients such as lead, cadmium, chromium, and mercury.

Sewing Bootcamp

Textiles, Class/Workshop

Learn to upcycle your own clothes in this beginning sewing “bootcamp” series. Get familiar with the care and use of a sewing machine and solving basic sewing problems, take accurate body measurements and learn to fit items to your own aesthetic and body type. Sew a knit cap in the first class, and move on to sewing an upcycled knit/sweatshirt dress or tunic in the second session. The final class will focus on embellishments and finishing touches, i.e. pockets, zippers, buttons/buttonholes, hems, etc. Take away a short guide and reference list to assist you in applying your new skills at home.
