Fall/Winter Eco Printing 

w/ Monica Medeiros​

October 20, 21, & 22
3-day Event - $950

While Spring and Summer are abundant with flowers for creating bright and colorful designs, Winter can feel a little lackluster. 

This workshop will focus on ways to maintain the natural dye process during the Fall and Winter months.  We will explore alternative mordants, using foliage rather than flora, and on drying and preserving our Spring and Summer harvests for dying later in the year.  Students are provided with an array of dyestuffs and materials to dye. 

While this workshop is great for those who have taken our previous Spring or Summer Eco-Printing Workshop, it is also suitable for beginners as well.  Lunch is served.
