Botanical Prints


Shopping + making combined in one fun experience.

This class is for anyone wanting to transform plants into beautiful prints on useful goods. No prior experience required. You will make prints on silks (scarves, kids playsilks, and/or runners) and a set of tea towels to take home for your own enjoyment or to stock your gift closet. Value of finished goods: $300+

We will dive right in to creating (layering the flora onto our goods, of course) and begin processing the prints. While the bundles enjoy their first bath, we will back up to learn about plants, fabrics, tools, and processing methods. The evening will wrap up with preparing custom labels (pre-printed with your name) to affix to your finished goods.

Class starts with the delightful experience of unrolling your bundles. Marvel at your finished work as we add the finishing touches.

Notes:

All goods will be prepared by Jenna before class. This involves scouring (to remove any sneaky oils), resting, mordanting (to prepare the fiber to accept dye), and resting. Contact Jenna if you are interested in joining in this preparation process.
