Using flowers, sticks, leaves and found objects we will imprint paper and fabric with imagery and patterns from the natural world. Students will learn how to use what grows all around them to make beautiful textiles. If time permits we will also bundle found objects and food stuff. We encourage students to bring in their own found objects, treasures and trash to incorporate into their work.
*This class has a $30 materials fee that includes all the dyestuffs, a handout and fiber. Please provide to instructor at first class.
