We will spend the day exploring many aspects of ecoprinting. Ideas we will be experimenting with include:  best practices for mordanting fabric; water and how in can influence print outcome; incorporating natural dyes; rust and ecoprints; foraging for plants and care of ecoprinted fabrics. You will leave class with many fabric samples and a scarf, as well as a wealth of ideas for further explorations with this wonderful surface design technique.
