Botanical Ecodyeing Silk Scarves

With Anna Zell. Botanical printing uses historical methods to capture colors, textures, and shapes found in nature – resulting in stunning plant portraits on fabric. Textile artist Anna Zell will lead you step-by-step through this environmentally gentle process that permanently transfers botanical pigments without synthetic dyes, inks or paints. You’ll take home your own eco-printed silk noil and a crepe de chine or charmeuse silk scarf, and you’ll have the knowledge to make more for yourself, or as spectacular gifts for others. Includes all silk fabric and dying supplies. (See Anna’s work at www.facebook.com/annazelldesigns). Cost: $130general/$120 Leach Garden Friend.
