Cost: $60

Date: Saturday February 18th

Time: 530PM - 7:30PM

Location: The Botanist 408 8ave NE

Teacher: Ruby Martin

In this class we will be working with plant materials for Mother Earth to create unique colours and designs on fabrics such as cotton, hemp, wool, linen and more. Using common plants, safe non toxic materials to create beautifully coloured garments and yarn.

Learn to work with mordants to make the fabric colourfast, so that the pigments won't fade as quickly as well as different botanicals to get desired pigments including indigo vats. Create enchanting eco- prints such as; the Japanese Hapa Zone flower method, the advanced blanket method, clay resist and tie dye!

Hands on experience:

  • Together we will prepare a color dye bath for your very own small cloth napkin to take home. All materials provided except for one piece of material/personal item you want to prepare.
  • We will also use fresh flowers to make botanical prints together. 

Please bring a 100% cotton white or light color: table runner, scarf, bandana, tote bag, cloth flag or any other garment that doesn't require frequent washing. Fresh flowers & leaves provided.
