Botanical Printing
Saturday, May 26, 2018 • 9:00am–4:00pm
Leach Botanical Garden, Portland, OR

Botanical printing uses historical methods to capture colors, textures, and shapes found in nature – resulting in stunning plant portraits on fabric. Leaves are layered onto natural fabrics, tightly bundled, then steamed or boiled. This environmentally gentle process permanently transfers botanical pigments without synthetic dyes, inks or paints. Anna Zell, textile artist, designer and pattern-maker, will lead you step by step through the eco-printing process. You’ll take home your own eco-printed silk noil and either crepe de chine or charmeuse silk scarf, along with the knowledge necessary to make more, for yourself or as spectacular gifts for others. (See Anna’s work at Leach Botanical Garden, 6704 SE 122nd Avenue, Portland, OR 97236. Location: Manor House and East Terrace. $125/person includes all silk fabric and dyeing supplies, along with a take-home kit. Pre-registration required.

Rogerson’s Clematis Garden, West Linn, OR

Please join us for our Inviting Vines Garden Tour with events to celebrate our eleventh annual tour. In addition to the Rogerson Clematis Garden there will be four private gardens for you to visit.

We’ve added two very special events to our garden tour this year. For special event ticket holders the day begins with “Breakfast with Lucy Hardiman” at 9:00am. Enjoy a light breakfast in the milking parlor of the barn at Luscher Farm, while Lucy shares the historical research and plant selection for the Heirloom Garden and beyond with her presention "Breaking Ground: The Rogerson Clematis Garden from Research to Reality”. After her talk, follow Lucy for an exclusive tour of the Heirloom Garden with its original plant list in hand.

New this year, in the afternoon special event ticket holders may also join the Collection's curator Linda Beutler, for tea and her presentation: “Clematis Unbound: Planting the Heirloom Garden's Clematis” followed by a private tour of the Heirloom Garden with Linda. Both will continue where Mike Darcy left us last year with the City of Lake Oswego’s agreement to house Brewster’s collection. Our special ticket holders will move through the design of the Heirloom Garden and the selection of companion and heirloom plants around the farmhouse. This will be a great opportunity to share the garden with friends, and maybe take an heirloom clematis home with you by purchasing raffle tickets to win our garden baskets.

Private gardens open 11:00am-4:00pm. Extra Events: Breakfast with Lucy Hardiman & Afternoon Tea with Linda Beutler.
