Dyeing and Printing with Florida Plants Workshop

with Bonnie Bowman

Sunday, February 5, 2017

10 am - 4 pm

$90 per person  (Ages 16 up)

Capture the essence of nature on paper silk and other fabrics. In this workshop you will learn how to extract dyes and prints from the plants in your own yard or natural Florida landscapes. At the end of this workshop, you will take home fabric swatches to use for future reference, a beautifully printed and dyed silk scarf, and several sheets of printed art paper suitable for framing, bookmaking or to use as special note cards. The instructor will share a wealth of information based on her extensive study and experimentation with local plants as dye sources, and provide you with a list of plants that have given her the best results. You will also learn how to determine for yourself, which plant species will render lasting colors, and how to prepare and mordant fabrics.

You will leave with enough information to get you started in the fascinating craft of natural dying and printing. Fee includes all supplies, silk samples, pper, and one large silk scarf blank. The instructor will have additional silk scarves available for purchase so students may make more scarves if time permits.

Instructor: Bonnie L Bowman
