Ecoprint and Felt a Wall Hanging Workshop! Sat & Sun, July 13-14, 2019, 10:00-4:00
Learn the fun art of Ecoprinting AND felting embellishments for Silk! Then turn it into a beautiful wall hanging!
Spend a weekend in the country at our studio and learn the rewarding art of Ecoprinting on Silk Noil, then incorporating your designs onto the surface using a felting technique. Then you’ll turn it into a beautiful Wall Hanging for your home or office!
“Ecoprinting” involves foraging and collecting Nature’s leaves, plants and flowers to imprint directly onto specific fabric (or paper and leather). You will fall in love with the unique, all natural designs and colors drawn directly from the gifts that Nature released to you!
Day 1: You will collect leaves and plants from the studio farm and learn how to ecoprint them onto a 18″ x 24″ length of silk noil-a heavyweight raw silk. You’ll learn to create and design a layout that showcases your print and your felt designs. While your silk processes, you’ll create ideas and learn how to turn them into templates for your felted designs. We will be washing and drying our pieces, then drawing and positioning our designs onto the silk for felting on day 2.
Day 2: Students will begin felting their designs onto their silk using their felting kits. (see supply list) Learn ways to incorporate your felted designs into your ecoprinted piece! When completed, students will learn how to turn their ecoprinted and felted piece into beautiful wall decor! Sewing a backing onto completed wallhanging is optional. The 2 day workshop is $295.00, all supplies included with the exception of the list below.
